Is consciousness all-or-nothing, or graded?

This post will be extended; for now, this new piece of research by James Elliot provides evidence for partial awareness (Kouider), i.e. that we don’t necessarily see the whole, but can access parts of the whole. This differs somewhat from earlier “gradedness” accounts which focussed on the “gradedness” of subjective reports (Overgaard). A couple of years ago, another paper showed how gradedness depended on the abstractness of the level that had to be reported (Windey & Cleeremans).
