We propose that scientific representation is a special case of a more general notion of representation, and that the relatively well worked-out and plausible theories of the latter are directly applicable to the scientific special case. Construing scientific representation in this way makes the so-called ¿problem of scientific representation¿ look much less interesting than it has seemed to many, and suggests that some of the (hotly contested) debates in the literature are concerned with non-issues.
