Trading automatic/nonautomatic for unconscious/conscious

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

3 Scopus citations


In this commentary I show that the SOC framework implies automaticity of both the materialization of phenomenological conscious experience and the application of the primitives resulting from the emergence of consciousness. In addition, SOC implies that cognition refers to conscious experience. Consequently, I propose automatic/nonautomatic instead of unconscious/conscious as the basic contrast characterizing human cognition.
