Readings about the unconscious mind and implicit learning

I am excited that we are discussing a topic I fell in love with on my sabbatical – the role of the unconscious mind in learning – in our new class on conceptual change. In order to begin to investigate this topic we are reading (1) the cover story from the January 2014 issue of Scientific American on the Unconscious Mind, (2) chapters 1 and 2 from Daniel Kahneman’s 2011 book “Thinking Fast and Slow”, and (2) chapter 3 from Daniel Goleman’s 2013 book “Focus.”

To start our discussion I am interested in any questions the readings may prompt.
