Description: A mental representation is a mental object with semantic properties. According to the Representational Theory of Mind, psychological states are to be understood as relations between agents and mental representations. Article from the Stanford Encyclopedia, by David Pitt.
Mental Representation (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy) First published Thu Mar 30, 2000; substantive revision Tue Dec 11, 2012 The notion of a â€œmental representationâ€ is, arguably, in the first instance a theoretical construct of cognitive science. As such, it is a basic concept of the Computational Theory of Mind, according to which cognitive states and processes are constituted by the occurrence, transformation and storage (in the mind/brain) of information-bearing structures (representations) of one kind or another.
