An Exploration of Representational Complexity Via Coupled Oscillator Systems

Anthony Chemero and Douglas Eck

We note some inconsistencies in a view of representation which takes decoupling to be of key importance. We explore these inconsistencies using examples of representational vehicles taken from coupled oscillator theory and suggest a new wayto reconcile coupling with absence. Finally, we tie these views to a teleological definition of representation.
