Against Formalism

Somewhat related to my last post, can anyone recommend any good references which outline the limitations of formalism and the (current-ish and historical) argument(s) against formalism? Outlining the pros and cons of transformationalist grammar would be nice too.

Please note that the person reading this is linguistically-educated almost exclusively in formal linguistics-- though not all of it Chomskian.
