The preconscious, according to Freud, is the area that lies between conscious awareness and the unconscious. When thoughts are in the preconscious they are not at the conscious level nor are they buried in the unconscious but they are in between and can be retrieved or called into consciousness. According to Freud, this is an area where thoughts stay temporarily, not permanently.
