SCHAF, Débora. Intuition: what is it about?. Rev. bras. psicanál [online]. 2018, vol.52, n.4, pp. 169-184. ISSN 0486-641X.

This work is an attempt at broadening the understanding and the debate about the ability we sometimes call “intuition”. The author's purpose is to draw a path with different points of view about the subject, by using perspectives from Biology, Physics, Philosophy, and especially from Psychoanalysis. Intuition is treated as a way of knowing the reality and the other person. It does not involve descriptive processes, but comes from experience, i.e. from the direct contact with the object. This work results from a reflection on what pathways and processes are part of the intuitive knowledge. The author searched in different theoretical areas to help this understanding.

Keywords : Psychoanalysis; intuition; Bion; Kant; knowledge.
