“Thus being the 16.05 from Cambridge to Liverpool Street is a purely syntactic property – it is determined by the rule that says that any wft [well-formed train] that leaves Cambridge at (approximately) 16.05 and arrives at Liverpool Street at 17.09 is, by “theoretical definition”, the 16.05 from Cambridge to Liverpool Street. Naturally, to infer rules from the somewhat rought and ready actual behaviour of the system will require much careful study and idealisation – but who ever thought train science would be easy? … What makes [this analogy] absurd is the idea that there is anything syntactic about this causal system at all. To hold that it is syntactic involves a trivialisation of the idea of syntax, rendering it useless for distinguising between the causal structure of the mind and that of Network South-East … Why should we suppose that the mind has syntactic structure?” Tim Crane, ‘The Language of Thought: no Syntax without Semantics‘, Mind & Language, 5 (1990), 187-212. DOI: 10.1111/j.1468-0017.1990.tb00159.x
