The self-organizing consciousness

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 25 (3):297-388 (2002)
Abstract
We propose that the isomorphism generally observed between the representations composing our momentary phenomenal experience and the structure of the world is the end-product of a progressive organization that emerges thanks to elementary associative processes that take our conscious representations themselves as the stuff on which they operate, a thesis that we summarize in the concept of Self-Organizing Consciousness (SOC). Key Words: Associative learning; automatism; consciousness; development; implicit learning; incubation; language; mental representation; perception; phenomenal experience
Keywords *Associative Processes  *Cognitive Processes  *Consciousness States  *Phenomenology
