The representational nature of human cognition and thought in general has been a source of controversies. This is particularly so in the context of studies of unconscious cognition, in which representations tend to be ontologically and structurally segregated with regard to their conscious status. However, it appears evolutionarily and developmentally unwarranted to posit such segregations, as, otherwise, artifact structures and ontologies must be concocted to explain them from the viewpoint of… 
Unconscious Representations 1: Belying the Traditional Model of Human Cognition
TLDR
Experimental evidence belies the traditional model of human cognition, suggesting that higher-level mental processes can be, and often are, carried out in a wholly unconscious way and/or without conceptual representations, and that these can be processed unconsciously.
Transitions Versus Dissociations: A Paradigm Shift in Unconscious Cognition
AbstractSince Freud and his co-author Breuer spoke of dissociation in 1895, a scientific paradigm was painstakingly established in the field of unconscious cognition. This is the dissociation

The Form in Formal Thought Disorder: A Model of Dyssyntax in Semantic Networking
TLDR
A logic-based model for the syntax–semantics interface in semantic networking that can not only explain, but also diagnose, FTD is presented and is called the dyssyntax model.
To Be or Not To Be Informed, That Is the Question of Oo ntology
The relations between ontology and information are many and fundamental, and they help us to understand the present gulf between (formal) o ntology and (philosophical) O ntology: We can speak of
Toward a General Theory of Knowledge
TLDR
This paper attempts to sketch this generality via the establishing of both knowledge structures and knowledge systems that can then be adopted/adapted by the diverse communities for the respective knowledge technologies and practices by means of a formal–indeed, mathematical–approach to epistemological matters a.k.a. formal epistemology.

An evolutionary context for the cognitive unconscious
Abstract This paper is an attempt to put the work of the past several decades on the problems of implicit learning and unconscious cognition into an evolutionary context. Implicit learning is an
The nature and plausibility of Cognitivism
Abstract Cognitivism in psychology and philosophy is roughly the position that intelligent behavior can (only) be explained by appeal to internal “cognitive processes,” that is, rational thought in a
Unconscious knowledge: A survey
TLDR
A survey of the main psychological research currently being carried out into cognitive processes, and examines pathways that can be integrated into a discipline of unconscious knowledge.
The propositional nature of human associative learning
TLDR
It is argued that this new conceptual framework allows many of the important recent advances in associative learning research to be retained, but recast in a model that provides a firmer foundation for both immediate application and future research.
Minds, Brains, and Programs

TLDR
Only a machine could think, and only very special kinds of machines, namely brains and machines with internal causal powers equivalent to those of brains, and no program by itself is sufficient for thinking.
Human Symbol Manipulation Within an Integrated Cognitive Architecture
TLDR
An architectural comparison of the competence children display in this task and the competence that monkeys have shown in tasks that require manipulations of sequences of elements is compared.
Physical Symbol Systems
TLDR
In this paper, the nature of physical symbol systems is laid out in ways familiar, but not thereby useless, to review the basis of common understanding between the various disciplines.
