Does Representation Need Reality? [chapter]

Markus F. Peschl, Alexander Riegler
1999 Understanding Representation in the Cognitive Sciences  
· This paper discusses the notion of representation and outlines the ideas and questions which led to the organization of this volume. We argue for a distinction between the classical view of referential representation, and the alternative concept of system-relative representation. The latter refers to situated cognitive processes whose dynamics are merely modulated by their environment rather than being instructed and determined by it.
