Connell, Richard J. Books

Empirical Intelligence. The Human Empirical Mode Philosophy as Originating in Experience
1988 0-88946-337-9
Shows how human intelligence starts from observable properties of things and moves to unobservable realities, especially causes. Language and mythology then reflect the characteristics of this mode. Also argues against innate ideas and a priori concepts by showing the empirical character of philosophy and contrasting its foundations and explanatory method with the natural sciences.
