I am a little unclear as to the difference between modularity and
domain-specificity. According to Fodor, domain specificity is an
essential property of a modular faculty of mind - it distinguishes the
way of conceiving of mental architecture as structured, from another to
which the division cross-cut domains.

Please can someone explain this is such as way as Kid Sib ?
can understand it. Sean Hawkins
