In metaphysics, and especially ontology, a concept is a fundamental category of existence. In contemporary philosophy, there are at least three prevailing ways to understand what a concept is: ⁕Concepts as mental representations, where concepts are entities that exist in the brain. ⁕Concepts as abilities, where concepts are abilities peculiar to cognitive agents. ⁕Concepts as abstract objects, where objects are the constituents of propositions that mediate between thought, language, and referents.
