I’ve become known for my anti-representationalist stance.  The idea of building a simulacrum of the world within the head seems ridiculous.  Yet my approach demands that we recognize that as we look outwards, and understand the categories and structure of the world, that we recognize that we are looking at ourselves.  We can only see things from our perspective.  This leads to the odd situation that instead of seeing the world in the nervous system, I seem to be suggesting that we see the nervous system in the world.  Perhaps we are converging.  The only casualty will be our fictive selves.
