Higher-order functions of cognitive control are not dealt with properly by contemporary psychologists. All to often, the mysterious 'little man', or homunculus, is implicitly referred to when speaking about the mechanisms of cognitive control. For instance, control is switched on or off, but by whom? The thesis of this short note is to suggest that attention is the mechanism that plays a role implicitly ascribed to the homunculus. So, the studies of attention, with their many theories and sophisticated experimental paradigms, may be insightful for our understanding of the controlling functions of mind.
