The limited roles of unconscious computation and representation in self-organizational theories of mind
Behavioral and Brain Sciences 25 (3):338-339 (2002)
In addressing the shortcomings of computationalism, we should not throw the baby out with the bathwater. That consciousness is not merely an epiphenomenon with optional access to unconscious computations does not imply that unconscious computations, in the limited domain where they do occur (e.g., occipital transformations of visual data), cannot be reformulated in a way consistent with a self-organizational view.
