Consciousness, connectionism, and intentionality
Journal/Book: Behav Brain Sci. 1999; 22: 40 West 20Th Street, New York, NY 10011-4211, USA. Cambridge Univ Press. 154+.
Abstract: Connectionism can provide useful theories in which consciousness is the exclusive vehicle of explicit representation. The theories may not, however, handle some phenomena adequately; sense of agency, modes and contents of awareness, propositional and deliberative thought, metacognitive awareness and consciousness of self. They should, however, be useful in describing automatic, activational relations among nonpropositional conscious contents.
