520 This book focuses on the very nature and function of
intuitive thought. It presents an up-to-date scientific
model on how the non-conscious and intuitive thought
processes work in human beings. The model is based on
mainstream theorizing on intuition, as well as qualitative
meta-analysis of the empirical data available in the
research literature. It combines recent work in the fields
of philosophy of mind, cognitive psychology and positive
psychology. While systematic research in intuition is
relatively new, there is an abundance of positions
advocating more or less imaginative ideas of what
intuition is about, ranging from quantum mechanical
phenomena to new age ideologies. Research in the past few
decades, in particular by proponents of the dual
processing theory of thought such as Daniel Kahneman and
Jonathan Evans, offers powerful tools to address and
evaluate the question of intuition without the need to
resort to spiritual entities. Within the framework of the
dual processing theory, backed up by findings in positive
psychology, intuition turns out to be the capacity to
carry out complex cognitive operations within a specific
domain of operations familiar to the agent.
