In the traditional view, an organism is thought to incorporate representations. These provide an internal model that is used by the organism to instruct the motor apparatus so that the adaptive and anticipatory characteristics of behavior come about. So‐called interactionists claim that this representational specification of behavior raises more problems than… CONTINUE READING
