Contrasts and dissociations suggest qualitative differences between conscious and unconscious processes

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 25 (3):359-360 (2002)
The authors reject a computationally powerful unconscious. Instead, they suggest that simple unconscious processes give rise to complex conscious representations. We discuss evidence showing contrastive effects of conscious and unconscious processes, suggesting a distinction between these types of processes. In our view, conscious processes often serve to correct or control negative consequences of relatively simple unconscious processes.
