(19) However, for Popper intellectual intuition
as inbuilt disposition or tendencies are a product of our "background" knowledge of which we are only ever consciously aware of a miniscule fraction at any point in time.
For example, in light of the availability of more minimal accounts of conscious awareness at the time (e.g., Gefuhl), Schelling's attempt to maintain intellectual intuition
while abstracting from the explicit self-positing of the I may not be doomed to failure.
Rejecting this alien interpretation may account for the fact that, in subsequent editions of his work, Schleiermacher largely replaces the term "intuition" with "feeling." Ironically, in doing so, he mirrors the progression of Hegel's own thought as described above, away from an attachment to intellectual intuition
, toward an understanding of it as purely subjective and hence arbitrary feeling.
Is there no place for intellectual intuition
, then, in Maritain's way of thinking?
Fichte now used the expression intellectual intuition
for this immediate self-consciousness, in which the self-reverting activity of the intellect is at the same time the original intuition of the I.
Instead, credit her with the intellectual intuition
to understand that our crime debate is irrational not merely because of the sensational mass media.
It shows that Kant's arguments in the second half of the B-Deduction aim to define the scope of that universality for possible experience by considering the possibilities of divine intellectual intuition
, of nonhuman kinds of sensible intuition, and of apperception of the self.
(40) This intuition is the intellectual intuition
, an intuition considered as a possibility and then rejected by Kant as implying the possibility of knowledge of the noumenon, (41) although he was not consistent on this.
Winkler argues that Kant understood Berkeley as maintaining a Platonist view that we perceive sensible objects, including ourselves, through intellectual intuition
, leading Berkeley to his overconfident claim to know that our sensible ideas are direct determinations of our minds by God.
One of the greatest scientific contributions of Ibn Sina was to demonstrate that there are, in fact, not one but many methods of acquiring scientific knowledge, ranging from empirical observation and experimentation, to deduction and demonstration, to intellectual intuition
which he called hads.
Synchronicity and Intellectual Intuition
in Kant, Swedenborg, and Jung.
The geometer's contemplation of the point as a mathematical object involves "intelligible intuition," which must not be confused with the "intellectual intuition
" of the philosopher thinking about "the I," even though Fichte finds the point a fitting spatial symbol for the nonspatial simplicity of the I.
(49) In other work, I develop this sketch of Kant's positive conception of the immediacy of intuition, showing how it illumines his accounts of pure sensible intuition and intellectual intuition
. In doing so, I clarify how, in relation to the whole of possible human experience, empirical and pure sensible intuitions relate to objects as grounds of their genuine cognition.
Forster declares that the powers of supersensible intuition which Kant denied of the human mind assume, in Kant's most influential reflections upon them (sections 76 and 77 of the third Critique), two fundamentally different forms: "intellectual intuition
for which possibility (thinking) and actuality (being) coincide" and "an intuitive understanding which goes from the intuition of the whole to its parts and thus perceives no contingency in the way the parts are assembled into a whole." (25) As Forster makes clear, this is a highly salient distinction, one that he professes himself to be the first reader of Kant to appreciate: "Previous Kant scholarship has failed to recognize that these [intellectual intuition and intuitive understanding] are in fact two distinct faculties....
