Peschl M. & Riegler A. (1999) Does representation need reality? In: Riegler A., Peschl M. & von Stein A. (eds.) Understanding representation in the cognitive sciences. Kluwer Academic / Plenum Publishers, New York: 9–17. Fulltext at
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.
