The chapter begins by making clearer what the central question is that drives the rest of the book: why would organisms rely on mental representations to make decisions about what to do? It then goes on to address two preliminary questions. First, there is the question of why investigating the evolution of representational decision making is useful and interesting. Second, there is the question of what kind of project investigating the evolution of representational decision making is.
