|Representation, philosophy: representations are adopted internal conditions, such as visual imaginations or linguistic completions, which set in as associations or are possibly developed by reconstruction. In a wider sense, sentences, words, and symbols are representations within a character system. See also truth maker, idea, sentences, propositions, intensions, correspondence, speech act theory._____________Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them.

Representation/Lanz: Materialism Vs: (VsNagel, Vs Jackson Vs Kripke): it is not about different types of information (subjective contra objective), but about several distinctive skills. One recognizes a feature due to propositional knowledge about it - another detects a feature due to sensory states.
So it is not about different types of objects in the world, but about different types of representation of objects in the world. (> Identity thesis).

Danto I 211
Kant/Danto: Kant is also representationalist. There is no phenomenon of continuity, which would have explained the continuity of phenomena. Mental Synthesis. We need an x to refer the continuity to it, even if continuity itself would only be the result of a work of the mind.
These mechanisms are never present to the consciousness._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number. The corresponding books are indicated on the right hand side. ((s)…): Comment by the sender of the contribution.
