Abstract [en]

We argue that two qualitatively distinct modes of apprehension, two cognitive modes, are brought into play in our knowing the world. This sort of claim is not new to Psychology (e.g., Baron, 1981; Brunswik, 1966; Heft, 1993; Michotte, 1955/1991; Polanyi, 1966; Ryan, 1938) but with reliance on basic ecological tenets, a more substantial treatment should be possible. Drawing on recent theoretical development and empirical results (Runeson, Juslin & Olsson, 2000), and in radical contrast to timeworn constructivist notions, it is maintained that use of meaningful specificational information is the hallmark of perception, whereas “cognition” provides various supplementary functions. Tentatively, we characterize the two modes as follows:
