CFP: Teorema: Intuition

Submission deadline: January 15, 2014

Topic areas


Few philosophical concepts are more central than that of intuition.  Within the phenomenological tradition, intuition is that privileged mode of consciousness in which an object is present or given.  It is contrasted with empty or signitive acts. Among many contemporary philosophers, intuitions are propositional attitudes whose contents seem true to their subjects. teoremainvites submissions on all aspects of this topic.  Just what is intuition?  What are the various species of it?  Is all intuition sensuous, or can we intuit such things as essences, necessities, possibilities, and normative states of affairs?  What role does intuition play in the production of knowledge, and how does it do so?  How is intuition related to acts of meaning, conceiving, and theorizing?  What role do empty intentions and horizons play in intuitive acts?  Do philosophers—phenomenologists and contemporary philosophers, for instance—use the term ‘intuition’ univocally?

teorema encourages submissions on these and related questions from authors working either within the phenomenological or other traditions.  Articles must be written in English and should not exceed 6,000 words.  For the presentation of their articles, authors are requested to take into account the instructions available at
