Mental picture/Pinker: two-and-a-half dimensional sketch in long-term memory - for computer theory easy- an equilateral triangle stands on a circle: here no points are shown, but relations are expressed.
Example: one is richer than another, but poorer than a third: is often treated as mental picture. - But conceptual representation is structured quite differently. - E.g. grin without a cat is conceptually possible but not like mental picture.
Images can neither serve as terms nor as a word meaning in our inner dictionary. - PinkerVsTradition: mental picture is not mixed or without contours.
Thoughts are never ambiguous, images are._____________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.
