       2. The Nature of Intuitive Thought -- Chapter 3. Using 
       Intuition -- Chapter 4. Conclusion. 
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.
