Unconscious semantic access: A case against a hyperpowerful unconscious

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 25 (3):340-341 (2002)
We analyze some of the recent evidence for unconscious semantic access stemming from tasks that, although based on a priming procedure, generate semantic congruity effects because of response competition, not semantic priming effects. We argue that such effects cannot occur without at least some glimpses of awareness about the identity and the meaning of a significant proportion of the primes.
