This chapter draws links with a variety of related topics in cognitive psychology. Implicit memory is reviewed and compared with the products of implicit learning. The question of the abstractness of these implicit memorial representations is discussed and related to questions of consciousness. The roles of implicit systems in tasks such as predicting future outcomes, making choices, and solving problems are reviewed and the relationships to nativism and empiricism are discussed once more. Finally, several possible extensions and applications to topics such as Zen Buddhism, aesthetics, and pedagogy are discussed.

Keywords:   implicit memory, implicit decision-making, choice behavior, nativism, empiricism, applications, Zen Buddhism, aesthetics, pedagogy
