The paper presents a critical reconstruction of the problem of representation against a background of the dispute between realists and constructionists. It tries to show that a traditional approach to the representation applied in the frames of both positions needs revision today. On the one hand, it is not possible to limit the application of the category only to the relation of mirroring in the knowledge of the empirical world (as realists believe), on the other, however, the representation should not be completely eliminated from the area of present epistemological investigations ( as constructionists claim). Considering these requirements the author proposes the notion of the representation composed with many units with essential role played by teleological factor. .
