This chapter reviews representational concepts from a psychological perspective. It begins with a discussion of defining characteristics and controversial issues associated with the concept, followed by a summary of the various forms it has taken in the history of psychology. This conceptual analysis provides the background for an evaluation in the next chapter of three general attitudes and approaches to cognitive representations among contemporary researchers.
