Title: Dominic Murphy
Brains and Beliefs

Eliminative arguments have typically moved from the premise that something  
is horribly unscientific  about folk psychology to the  conclusion that it  
should all be swept away and replaced with neuroscience. But there is no  
need for the replacement theory to be  non-psychological. The perspective I  
argue for suggests that we think of eliminativism as a revisionary  
doctrine, not a revolutionary one;  a reformulated cognitive psychology can  
still play a crucial role in describing and explaining the subject matter  
of the cognitive sciences. But that scientifically reformed psychology  
should play the role that folk psychology is often awarded in the  
integrationist picture that sees psychology as the topmost in a hierarchy  
of levels of explanation. The integrationist perspective is unstable. Folk  
psychology is not scientifically worthwhile, but philosophy of mind can  
play an important role in establishing its contours, and we should not  
expect folk psychology to disappear as a part of our self-understanding.
