Implicit or Unconscious? Commentary on Paper by the Boston Change Process Study Group Related Papers

Arnold H. Modell, M.D.

This commentary examines a very fundamental aspect of human psychology: the nature of unconscious knowledge and the process of self-reflection. However the term implicit is associated in cognitive science with unconscious procedural knowledge (of motor acts) rather than unconscious meaning, which is the business of psychoanalysis.
