Ernst Mach's evolutionary theory of representation
Mach's thinking could be characterised in terms of an epistemological turn in the sense of empirical epistemology, like that of the British empiricists. With Mach, Austrian philosophy takes a new orientation, by leaving aside Bolzano's logical and mathematical interests as well as Brentanos's introspective study of the human mind.
