Abstract

A rough division is drawn between the cognitive and biomedical strand of theorising concerning cognitive processes. It is asserted that the cognitive strand is losing influence by comparison with the biomedical strand. Three types of intellectual reasons why this might be occurring are considered and each is rejected as inadequate. Three types of socio-political reasons are then proposed as important factors.
