In this paper we introduce a conceptual framework that makes possible a systematic comparison of the many contrasting proposals that theorists have put forward for implementing representation. The exposition of this framework is preceded by a short section in which we discuss various possible approaches to the study of representation and characterize the one we ourselves adopt as "pragmatic," and it is followed by a longer section in which we illustrate the utility of the framework by comparing the proposals of Rousseau and Bentham.
