AI and psychological approaches to context are contrasted and the dynamic and automatic nature of the continuous context change in human cognition is emphasized. A dynamic theory of context is presented which defines context as the dynamic state of human mind. It describes the interaction between memory, perception, and reasoning in forming context as well as how they are influenced by context. A general cognitive architecture, DUAL, is presented that implements the mechanisms of context
