We will look at the three most common representational systems
and how to spot and use them.
He calls for new representational systems
that embrace the city's multiple metaphors and see them as part of its matter, forces, and lives lived.
By imagining all creatures' representational systems

They pointed out that the representational systems
important to mathematics and its learning have "structure", so that the different representations within a system are richly related to one another.

When, in Design of the Universe, 1971, she pairs a lone breast print with a rendering of a globe (with nipple and North Pole wittily occupying the same location and surface area of their respective curvatures), she intertwines the human body--that irrational, illogical thing--with the inexorable laws guiding it and the representational systems
Burge also claims that it is possible to draw a distinction between representational states and purely sensory systems precisely here: whereas sensory systems can be fully explained in terms of causal covariation and biological functions, representational systems
have their own representational function.
This study involved the evaluation of the efficacy of a planned instructional program to facilitate understanding of the macroscopic, submicroscopic and symbolic representational systems
when describing and explaining chemical reactions by sixty-five Grade 9 students in a Singapore secondary school.
what a representation stands for can be found in the conditions in the world that must be in place if the system is to function as designed, the content of a representation is found in the normal conditions for the performance of the function of the mechanism that consumes it, whereas representational systems
display a systematic relationship between what is represented and variable features of the representation.
The notion of representational systems
opens possibilities for more refined representational characterizations.
Relying on (mentalese) concept language and its grammar, the authors harness the compositionality of the representational systems
to develop a richer model of concept learning.
6), another calls for the reconception of human beings as "transcendent creatures: irreducible to social anal representational systems
, as always unfinished, in the process of becoming in relation to their ever evolving contexts" (Riveria, p.
