Summary

This paper presents an illustrated tripartite model of communication according to which memory encompasses three overlapping subsets, the cognitive functions of experiencing, thinking, and expressing. It contends that thinking may be an integral part of the selection and experience of stimuli as well as of creating new expressions. No assumption is made about the existence or nonexistence of awareness, although awareness is not excluded from operating as a special set of cognitive rules. The model, inspired by Cushman and Whiting's 1971 San Francisco convention paper, (1) clarifies several lexical and conceptual questions, (2) provides a method for comparing other models and research findings, (3) helps in efforts to comprehend subjective experiencing, and (4) dissolves the boundary between cognition and communication.
