Abstract

This book records research that began with a simple question; ‘What are mental representations?’ The question may seem surprising, because mental representations, as commonly understood in standard Anglophone philosophy today, can seem unproblematic. The inference from ‘Mary believes that her keys are on the table,’ to ‘Mary has a state with the content, “My keys are on the table,”‘ may look obvious.
