    We present a representation principle for sets and functions, essentially meaning that sets and functions do exist in two different ways: as intuitive objects and as mathematical objects. In this paper some aspects of the relationship between these two ways are investigated. The principle has consequences for the concept of λ-calculus model and for the relationship between such models and set theory.
