This chapter provides a brief introduction to the distinction between conceptual and nonconceptual content and presents several arguments in favour of nonconceptual content. It argues that the distinction between conceptual and nonconceptual content should be understood as a difference in contents, rather than states. Following Cussins, it further proposes that nonconceptual content is best understood in terms of procedural knowledge or “knowledge-how”.

Keywords:   conceptual content, nonconceptual content, knowledge-how, Cussins
