Abstract : This paper provides a review of work on the representation of knowledge from within psychology and artificial intelligence. The work covers the nature of representation, the distinction between the represented world and the representing world, and significant issues concerned with propositional, analogical, and superpositional representations. Major controversies within psychology -- such as distinctions between declarative and procedural representation, propositional and analogical representation, and the nature of visual images -- are analyzed and found not to reflect fundamental disagreements.
