Representational redescription and cognitive architectures

Carassa, Antonella and Tirassa, Maurizio (1994) Representational redescription and cognitive architectures. [Journal (Paginated)]

Full text available as:



We focus on Karmiloff-Smith's Representational redescription model, arguing that it poses some problems concerning the architecture of a redescribing system. To discuss the topic, we consider the implicit/explicit dichotomy and the relations between natur al language and the language of thought. We argue that the model regards how knowledge is employed rather than how it is represented in the system.
