The focus on language is important; by seeing meth as a representational system
, the rules of communication can be critically exposed, and the book can be understood as a sustained attempt to demystify the mythologies of meth.
Although tailoring language to a preferred representational system
is a useful tool to build rapport, it is also worth remembering that a person may well be comfortable with more than one system, so while they may exhibit elements of more than one, the best results will be achieved by focussing on the more obvious behaviour pattern.
This, when coupled with more exposure to similarly structured external representations of other unit fractions or an external representation system of unit fractions, will eventually lead students to an evolvement of an internal representational system
for unit fractions.
This description of the pure subject from the philosophical standpoint of Deleuze and Guattari is a roadmap to the abandonment of representation, the end of subjectivity as such, and the impossibility of the stable organization of a representational system
. It operates in the opposite direction of phenomenology, which seeks to reinstitute and elevate the old form of science in new representational form.
The author replaces Goodman's "Characteristic Constitutive Aspects" (CCP) by "Syntactically Relevant Projectiles" (SRP), and holds that a representational System
(S) is mimetic with respect to a set of properties (C) if and only if the following four conditions hold.
The representational systems
important to mathematics and its learning have structure, so that different representations within a system are richly related to one another (pp.
Such considerations clarify the interpretation of the empirical field studied in that they provide feedback on the analysis of the representational system
in which the object is found.
"We are pushing forward with the aims of the revolution though various channels: political, through the new parliament and the presidential elections we are heading into; activism, through marches and demonstrations on the streets; judicial, through the myriad court cases people are filing; and industrial with strikes and sit-ins, the aim of this being that the military returns to barracks and allows a real representational system
to take hold."
According to Gabel (1999), in order for students to achieve a deeper understanding of the changes that occur during chemical reactions, students should be able to navigate back and forth between the macroscopic representational system
(that describes the bulk properties of matter), the submicroscopic representational system
(that provides explanations at the particulate level involving atoms, molecules and ions) and the symbolic representational system
(that involves the use of chemical symbols, formulas, equations, molecular structure drawings, diagrams, models, computer animations, etc.) to symbolise matter.
Morocco's complex proportional representational system
lends itself to fractured parliaments with many parties which are then assembled into governing coalitions by the king's advisers.
Boyle argues that these books are significant because they demonstrate that perspective during the seventeenth century should not be understood solely or even primarily in terms of the production of the "points" or "subjecting gazes" of a Cartesian or Euclidean representational system
The relevant mapping rule explains the evolutionary success of the representational system
. The function of a desire is to help cause its own fulfillment, the content of a desire is the state of affairs that comes about when the desire performs its proper function (the bee dance explains how the mapping relation works for desires), whereas the proper function of a desire is to bring about a particular state of affairs.
