I have ever since I first heard about Knowledge Representation in 
computer contexts thought that it meant:
*Representations of what is regarded as knowledge*.
For me, being a realist with a correspondence (or representational) 
theory of truth it then means:
*Representations of truthlike representations of reality*.    (02)

Is this a false inference on my part? If not, then I have no reason 
whatsoever to start to talk about 'Epistemology Representation' instead 
of Knowledge Representation .    (03)
