Paper co-authored by CSUSB professor of psychology cited in article about ecology and evolutionary biology

A paper co-authored by Donna Garcia, CSUSB professor of psychology, was cited in an article by Robert F. Shedinger, professor of Religion at Luther College in Decorah, Iowa, “Is Methodological Naturalism Racist?”

Shedinger wrote, “Criticisms of methodological naturalism usually revolve around philosophical issues.
