Beyond Confusion: Culture, Cognition, and Consciousness

Brian J. McVeigh
Cross Culture, March 1993, Vol. 11.

Abstract:

This article has two purposes; 1. to suggest why and how at least two terms, "consciousness" and "cognition" (or introspecting and thinking) can and should be distinguished and 2. to take a step toward demonstrating why consciousness is a cultural, sociohistorical construction learned through language, and not an inborn, automatic response of our neurological systems.
