Steven Pinker said that in a response to this post: Seven Sacred Words: An Open
Letter to Steven Pinker, https://new-savanna.blogspot.com/2011/10/seven-sacred-
words-open-letter-to-seven.html 

He attributed the idea to Jerry Fodor in this paragraph:

> I agree with you that there is a lot be explored here. and I also despair over
whether this will happen in universities, for exactly the reasons you mention.
Jerry Fodor, my former MIT colleague, whom I criticize in The Stuff of Thought
but who is often quite wise, once said that “the best interdisciplinary
collaborations are the ones that go on inside a single head.”
