Is Extensive Attention Conscious? An Essey on Relationships Between Attention and Consciousness in the Context of Attention States Theory
Languages of publication
Relacja uwagi i świadomości jest jednym z najczęściej dyskutowanych problemów teoretycznych poruszanych w literaturze dotyczącej poznawczych podstaw świadomości. W dotychczasowych badaniach najczęściej przyjmowano założenie, zgodnie z którym uwaga jest niezbędnym warunkiem uświadomienia. Takie ujęcie może być jednak problematyczne, jeżeli przyjmiemy, że dostęp do świadomości ma charakter stopniowalny. Jeżeli bowiem możemy być w różnym stopniu świadomi, to nie jest pewne z jakim stopniem świadomości miałaby być związana uwaga. Obszar analiz jeszcze bardziej komplikuje przyjęcie założeń teorii stanów uwagi Kolańczyk. W proponowanym artykule omówimy konsekwencje przyjęcia założeń tej teorii dla opisu relacji pomiędzy uwagą i świadomością. Interesować nas będą przede wszystkim stany osłabionego dostępu do świadomości i uwagi nie skoncentrowanej (ekstensywnej). Analizie poddane zostaną wyniki badań neurobiologicznych, w których opisuje się stany uwagi podobne do stanu uwagi ekstensywnej, a także związek tych stanów ze świadomością. Omówimy również teoretyczne konsekwencje proponowanego ujęcia teoretycznego dla rozważań dotyczących funkcji uwagi i świadomości.
