Some prospects of application of nonlinear dynamic approach to the understandimg of consciousness and its cognitive functions are shown in the article. Such an approach answers the orientations of the modern nonclassical epistemology. Such properties of consciousness as its emergent, holistic, embodied, situative and enactive nature are considered. The model of autopoiesis, i.e. of self-production and structural coupling of cognitive mind and a medium of its activity, turns to be relevant.
