|Cognition: cognition means processing of information by a human, animal or artificial system. Since information flows through all perceptual organs, uniform processing is to be assumed only on the lowest level of symbols. Examples of cognition are perception, learning, speech recognition, problem solving. Cognitions can run unconsciously._____________Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them.

|Chalmers I 113
Consciousness/Cognition/Dennett/Chalmer: Dennett (1978c) brings a cognitive model of consciousness consisting of the perception module, short-term memory, memory,...
...control unit and module for "public relations": for the implementation in everyday language.
ChalmersVsDennett: that shows us something about information processing and the possibility to report about it, but not why there should be a way for such a model "how it is" to be this model.
Later, Dennett introduced a more elaborate model (Dennett, Consciousness Explained, 1991) without a central "headquarter".
ChalmersVsDennett: this also brings a possible explanation of attention, but not a better explanation of conscious experience.
Consciousness/DennettVsNagel/DennettVsChalmers: thesis: what he shows, is nevertheless everything it takes to explain consciousness. As soon as one has explained the various functions, one has explained everything (Dennett, 1993a, p.210) and (FN9/Chapter 3)
Cognitive Models/Chalmers: there are also models by Churchland, (1995), Johnson-Laird (1988), Shallice (1972, 1988a, 1988b). ChalmersVs: to all my criticism VsDennett from above applies._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
