Inhoud
The question of which psychological processes are conscious and which are not has fascinated and challenged researchers for centuries. The mystery of consciousness has even been called “the last frontier of science.” In this kernthema, we will discuss various psychological processes that fall within one particular theme: what can we do unconsciously and when—and why—is consciousness really necessary? This kernthema will focus not only on various unconscious processes and the importance of the unconscious, but also on psychological processes that involve consciousness and various modern perspectives on what consciousness really is. These topics will be approached from a philosophical, neurological, and social-cognitive perspective.
