This chapter argues for the plausibility of Cognitive Pluralism as a general principle of cognitive architecture, and argues further that scientific pluralism is plausibly seen as a special case of this general principle. Cognitive Pluralism is compared with existing ideas of modularity.

Keywords:   Cognitive Pluralism, cognitive architecture, models, idealization, representational system, modularity, localization, brain, massive redeployment, domain‐specificity, frames, evolutionary psychology
