What is the meaning of Cognition?
Cognition is the faculty of knowing, perceiving and
conceiving (conceptualising). In the context of risk management and decision
making, cognition is a capacity that emerges along
with consciousness as the awareness of strategic choice. This consciousness
occurs at the implicit level, where judgement is being exercised,
just as it does at the higher levels where deliberate
and conscious choices are made. The key to cognition lies in the development of consciousness (Eden and Spender,
1998: 34) or situational awareness (Klein, 1998).
