The role of intuitions in philosophy

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract


I assess some recent positions about the role of intuitions in philosophy. I first describe the use of intuitions in mental experiments. Then I discuss philosophers who put great weight on intuitions. I suggest that intuitions can be explananda in the philosophical endeavour alongside other explananda. I propose a typology of existing intuitions. I then introduce the issue of the variability of intuitions and suggest some remedies.
