ENGELMANN, Arno. From the Subjective State concept toward the Percept Echelons proposal. Psicol. Reflex. Crit. [online]. 2002, vol.15, n.2, pp. 393-405. ISSN 1678-7153.

Dealing firstly with the affective percepts in 1962 and ending with percept echelons, the paper reconstructs Engelmann's psychological pathway. A serious study of mostly affect percepts indicated nonlocalized internal conscious states. Engelmann called them subjeticve states. But at the same time he found that there were other internal but localized external percepts. He called them objetive states. They were mainly characterized through reporting the weather. Finally, revising numerous perception studies, total, bipartite, supramodal, modal and fragmentary states are found and organizaed through largeness priority. Engelmann called them percepts echelons. In one moment only one percept echelon is possible, not more than one. So far it is not known if others parts of consciousness are divisible through echelons.
