Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

Unconscious: unconscious are processes in the inner life of subjects that are processed on no more than one level, i.e. influences such as perceptions or general stimuli, which are admitted into the subject but which are not reflected and thus do not provide a semantic content. If these influences are not lost, they represent a stock that can be reactivated and further processed. See also consciousness, self-consciousness, self, I, brain, mind, mental states, reflection, memory.

Searle I 197
Searle: In contrast to Freud's concept of the unconscious, the cognitive-scientific concept of the unconscious is not potentially conscious.

Rorty V 47
Unconscious/unconscious/Rorty: two meanings:
1. Several well-articulated beliefs and desire systems (quite rational).
2. Boiling mass in articulated instinctive powers, in which freedom of contradiction is irrelevant. If Freud had limited himself to this meaning, he would have left our self-image essentially unchanged.

V 47/48
Freud/Rorty: the new thing about him is that the unconscious ego is not a silent, stubborn staggering animal, but an intellectual equal to the other. If psychoanalysis had limited itself to the neuroses, it would never have attracted the attention of intellectuals.
Unconscious/I/Rorty: the unconscious as a rational opponent. I can also discover that my unconscious knew better than myself. This discredits the idea of a "true" I.

V 60
FreudVsPlato/FreudVsKant/FreudVsDescartes/Rorty: the unconscious, our conscience, is nothing immutable, not even a central part. All parts are equally authorized. Mechanization, process, to change ourselves.
---
V 61
Definition Conscience/Freud/Rorty: memories of idiosyncratic events. No substitute for moral reasoning.
