I think that Pizarro's commentary is astute and timely. I can't say that philosophers meeting that description are more likely to make that error (or the others errors identified in the elided parts of the quotation). Given how serious an error it is, I —like you, Shen-yi — should have liked to see some evidence for the flat-out assertion.

Similarly, Pizarro also says that psychologists "seem more likely to make sloppy, basic conceptual errors." Pizarro has more experience than me, so I take note when he says this. But, still, that's not been my experience.
