This lecture describes some of the functions of those capacities of the brain that are called "the Background". The Background would enable linguistic and perceptual interpretation to take place. Also, it would give structure to all our conscious life generally and to the temporal sequences of events in our lives. And it would be the source of our motivational dispositions for coping with our environment, facilitating a certain kind of readiness. Finally, the Background would make possible certain sorts of behaviors and certain sorts of responses, but not others. It is suggested that if we did apply these ideas in our cognitive sciences, we would get an approach quite different from the traditional computational approach.
