A new proposal about relational representations

We propose that relations are represented in terms of directly accessible relational associations which specify how objects are related to one another in terms of object features and inter-relations associations. In this approach, relation categories are built up from relational feature correlations learned on the basis of relation instances, much as object categories are built up from object feature correlations on the basis of object instances.
