Intuition: scientific, non-scientific or unscientific?

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)

Abstract

In this chapter we propose expanding the scope of what is covered by scholarly research on intuition. Specifically, we suggest expanding this research into an area often labeled as unscientific. Much of what is considered scientific knowledge today used to be outside the realm of scientific, until someone achieved an understanding of a phenomenon that enabled scientific inquiry. Based on this premise, we argue that what is not scientifically understood about intuition is not unscientific, but non-scientific. We put forward a model of the process of intuiting, which demystifies a part of the phenomenon previously dismissed by scholars, enabling further research.
