DE FARIA, Daniel Luporini  y  RODRIGUES, Cae. Naturalism and cognitive science: a systematic approach. Ciênc. cogn. [online]. 2012, vol.17, n.1, pp.120-129. ISSN 1806-5821.

Evaluating the role of philosophy within the general framework of constituted knowledge, we seek to determine in this article the meaning of the idea that cognitive science has come to substitute the role that has always been associated with epistemology. Investigating the relationship between philosophy and cognitive science, we critically evaluate the proposal of the Brazilian philosopher Marcos Barbosa de Oliveira, which states that cognitive science should be divided into natural and cultural. As we stand against this proposal, we argue that dividing cognitive science in two areas would bring more problems than solutions to the studies of the mind, because we believe that the integration of knowledge, the efforts to develop a common theoretical -conceptual framework, as well as the exchange of ideas, one of the main proposals of cognitive science, should not be abandoned because of worries that cognitive science would be treating as natural supposedly cultural aspects of cognition. Finally, we seek to point out the direction towards a systemic perspective, in which the specificities among knowledge would not be as apparent as they are commonly understood and investigated. © Cien.
