ABSTRACT
The article reviews and evaluates the current discussion regarding the role intuitions should play in the construction of philosophical theories, while, at the same time, proposing some methodological desiderata aimed at reconciling the more reasonable demands of experimentalists with certain traditional convictions that the author considers unavoidable in order to avoid general skepticism.
