Research of the Relationship of the Integral Characteristics of the Representation



The article raises the problem of representation, indicates that the multidimensionality, diversity of representation as a mental phenomenon requires consideration in different coordinate systems. It is shown that system consideration of the representation involves not only its study as a semifunctional education, a complex whole (structure), but also includes the study of its integral characteristics, because it is needed a minimally sufficient set of integral characteristics of representation that provides economy in its description. Also it is concluded that there is a need taking into account different measurements, various qualities and characteristics of representation; highlighting the determinant system, reflecting its diversity, multidimensionality; and correlating different dimensions (characteristics) to each other, as well as their complementarity. Indicated that the study of multidimensionality of representation involves the analysis of the relationship of its various integral characteristics (controllability, liveliness, brightness-clearness), that would clarify the nature of the desired integral factors and create a common system of methods for studying the representation. The author shows the results of correlation analysis of the integral characteristics of representation at different age/stages of school education.
