Ancients and moderns alike have constructed arguments and assessed theories on the basis of common sense and intuitive judgments. Yet, despite the important role intuitions play in philosophy, there has been little reflection on fundamental questions concerning the sort of data intuitions provide, how they are supposed to lead us to the truth, and why we should treat them as important. In addition, recent psychological research seems to pose serious challenges to traditional intuition-driven philosophical inquiry. Rethinking Intuition brings together a distinguished group of philosophers and psychologists to discuss these important issues. Students and scholars in both fields will find this book to be of great value.

Review quote

The papers in this collection constitute an excellent starting point for consideration of some of the deepest issues concerning the nature and viability of philosophy as an intellectual discipline. They deserve the attention of any reflective student of philosophy. * The British Journal for the Philosophy of Science * This is a very useful collection to have published. * Ethics: An International Journal of Social, Political, and Legal Philosophy * This is a very impressive collection of thoughtful and thought-provoking papers on the nature and significance of philosophical inquiry. * Philosophia Christi * Chapters cover a wide range of topics in intuition. * American Journal of Psychology *
