Against Intuition - ChronicleReview.com - 0 views

  • f anything can be pursued in an armchair, philosophy can," the esteemed Oxford philosopher Timothy Williamson told the Aristotelian Society, of London, a few years ago. That may sound like an innocuous
  • Experimental philosophers also draw on work by contemporary psychologists demonstrating just how malleable human cognition is, how easily redirected and reshaped it is by external cues, even as the conscious mind remains blissfully unaware. Opinions on crime and punishment, for instance, can be altered by placing people in a dirty room designed to trigger feelings of disgust: Subjects in such experiments respond more punitively when asked what should be done to certain hypothetical criminals.

      If Intuition means (knowledge) - understanding without apparent effort, quick and ready insight seemingly independent of previous experiences or empirical knowledge (with an emphasis on empirical knowledge), then this test isn't a good test. I think intuition is a deeper process than experiencing something or even learning about something and drawing a new conclusion from that experience or new knowledge. Maybe it is something as simple as seeing linkages that haven't been pointed out by anyone else and making educated guesses. But, then again, maybe it is something as mysterious as tapping into an unconscious web of collective knowledge and all people really are linked to one another spiritually.
  • They think that by studying human minds, using empirical techniques, and drawing on the insights of modern psychological science, they can get a better sense of where intuitions come from, and whether or when they should be granted credence.

      Using several different methods to look at a problem is a way of opening up thought so that more possibilities can be explored. And, if more possibilties can be explored, then, more conclusions can be drawn and tested for relevancy. I don't think that this is a bad thing. Take for example the writer who uses art as a spring board for new ideas or to expand his/her thinking in order to write newer/fresher things -- to get past static thinking.
