Introduction: Many Faces of Representationalism



The subject matter of all texts comprising this volume is a category of representation. Although it is not always explicit, the reference to the notion of representation enables to bring together shared characteristics of research into consciousness, enhancement of cognitive processes, metaphor and modes of coding of information in the mind.
