Implicit and explicit knowledge: One representational medium or many?

Hampton, J. A. (1999). Implicit and explicit knowledge: One representational medium or many?. Behavioral and Brain Sciences, 22(5), pp. 769-770. doi: 10.1017/s0140525x99382182


In Dienes & Perner’s analysis, implicitly represented knowledge differs from explicitly represented knowledge only in the attribution of properties to specific events and to self-awareness of the knower. This commentary questions whether implicit knowledge should be thought of as being represented in the same conceptual vocabulary; rather, it may involve a quite different form of representation.
