(p.13) 2 Pragmatic Representations
Between Perception and Action

Bence Nanay

Oxford University Press

Pragmatic representations are the representations that mediate between sensory input and motor output. The aim of this chapter is to argue that they are perceptual states and that they play a very important role in our mental economy. More precisely, the aim is to argue that there are mental representations that are both perceptual states and (part of what constitutes) the immediate mental antecedents of actions. The strategy this chapter follows is to start out with the immediate mental antecedents of actions, explain what they are, and then show that they are (very often) perceptual states.
