Yes, I think that is how Bruner treats it.

As I read this, I happen to be working with Bruner's developmental series
of enactive, iconic, and symbolic representation.

Bruner, J. S. (1964). The course of cognitive growth. American
Psychologist, 19(1), 1-15.

It's amazing how when I'm as intensely involved now in what I'm writing,
everywhere I turn I see things that mesh this closely.
