Representation and the figure of the observer

Download Edit this record How to cite View on PhilPapers
The theoretical use of representation faces, among others, two types of inconsistencies, namely: a representation requires the figure of the agent to which it will be representative, which leads either to circularity or to infinite return; and the resulting one, which is the difficulty in reconciling a description, in representative terms, with other more fundamental scientific categories. The proposal of the present study for the solution of these problems was the identification of a referential process starting from the correlation between states of a physical system. It will present an inference about how the superposition of causal history moments of a system can result in a self-referential structure.
