What and how do we represent in science and art?
(Philosophy of Science, English)

An account of theoretical representation (representation in science and art) is supposed to answer two questions: what does make A a representation of B? And, given that A represents B, how does it? In my account, these two questions are dealt with jointly. In a theoretical representation, some features of the carrier of the representation are exemplified. Then the representation user(s) interpret those features. These interpreted features, finally, get imputed to the target system. The above-mentioned elements altogether decide what represents what, and how.
