This compilation of cutting-edge philosophical and scientific research
comprises a survey of recent neuroscientific research on
representational systems in animals and humans. Representational
systems provide their owners with useful information about their
environment and are shaped by the special informational needs of the
organism with respect to its environment. In this volume, the
authors address the long-standing dispute about the usefulness of
the notion of representation in the study of behavior systems and
offer a fresh perspective on representational systems that combines
philosophical insights and experimental experience.
