Example text

Previously unknown ideas. It is a creative process. It is automatic in the sense that it is seemingly not consciously wilful, but not automatic in the sense of a machine or computer. The question therefore is not one of mechanicism, but of the concepts of ―will‖ and ―consciousness‖. Finally, these unconscious processes are not ―rational‖, but guided by patterns from previous often also unconscious experiences. e. fitting patterns to the facts into one single ―whole‖. 52 The dependency of these observations on the meaning of consciousness itself became very clear from the observations before.

It thereby seamlessly passes the usual (intuitive) ―epistemological cut‖ between physics, physiology and psychology (where the phenomena and concepts of one would ―end‖ and the other would ―begin‖). In this (and many other psychophysical experiments), Mach found no meaningful epistemological cut (especially not the skin) and thereby concluded that physics, physiology and psychology must ultimately be ―one‖. Conceptual unities, such as ――body‖ or ―ego‖ are only makeshifts, designed for provisional orientation and for definite practical ends (so that we may take hold of bodies, protect ourselves against pain, and so forth), we find ourselves obliged, in many more advanced scientific investigations, to abandon them as insufficient and inappropriate.

The concept has therefore acquired many (often inconsistent) meanings. Is the concept of intuition still inconsistent today? My hypothesis is that it is still inconsistent (for examples, see for instance Hassin et al. 2005 or Lakoff & Núñez 2000), which is why I propose a deconstruction and reconstruction of the concept in the first place. But before, I will briefly give examples of two interrelated areas, which have specifically added to this inconsistency, namely language and concept formation.
