|Abstract||Chapter 1: Discussion of my a posteriori strategy and the nature of representation in models. Chapter 2: Presentation of the SINBAD theory of the cerebral cortex. Chapter 3: Demonstration of how SINBAD networks develop into genuinely representational models. Application of the theory to equivocal representation, misrepresentation, empty representation, and twin cases. Chapter 4: Representata as sources of correlation, a solution to the problem of teleological indeterminacy, useful vs. true representation, objectivity. Chapter 5: The non-representational use of representations in the brain in occurrent belief (i.e. judgement) and occurrent desire, Swampman, propositional content, the non-occurrent attitudes, inference and psychological explanation. Chapter 6: SINBAD representation as a kind of mental representation, summary & conclusion.|
