"Implicit cognition" describes the fascinating learning, memory, and performance processes which take place without the subject's "explicit" awareness. A well known example is patients under anaesthetic who, without being able to verbally recall the surgeons' conversation, do show someretention of the conversation. How much of what we "know" has been learned implicitly? How much of our problem-solving abilities are founded on unconscious processes? Researchers disagree widely over the inmportance, and even the existence, of implicit cognition as an issue in human psychology. Thisbook brings together several internationally known authors with conflicting views on the subject, providing a lively and informative overview of this controversial area.
Geoffrey Underwood is at University of Nottingham.

From Our Editors

This book explores and evaluates the validity of the implicit/explicit distinction, and the extent to which this distinction can be used to account for a range of unconscious processes in perception, memory, learning, and thinking. Also emphasized are the methodological difficulties that are encountered in attempting to demonstrate cognition without awareness.
