Lanz in Hügli/Lübke, Philosophie des 20. Jahrhunderts, Reinbek 1993
I 279 ff
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.
