Metacognition – Thinking about thinking

Metacognition is “cognition about cognition”, “thinking about thinking”, “knowing about knowing”, becoming “aware of one’s awareness” and in general “higher-order thinking”. Meta is a prefix used in English to indicate a concept which is an abstraction behind another concept, used to complete or add to the latter. The term is etymologically derived from Ancient Greek from μετά (metá, cf. metaphysics, q.v. a science of that which transcends the physical, i.e., “higher than, transcending, overarching, dealing with the most fundamental matters”; cf. metacommunication (n.) “a secondary communication that takes place with, or underlies, a more obvious communication”; cf. metalogical (n.) “beyond the sphere of logic, transcending logic” (by 1865).
