Science could never have proceeded without the creativity of intuition--yet intuition is poorly understood and poorly studied. In "Intuition: The Inside Story, " scholars explore the nature of intuition and its practical place in the social and behavioral sciences and the arts. These contributors present the latest theoretical developments and research and provide every day examples of intuition from the lab and field. They discuss the nature and experience of intuition from the perspectives of anthropology, philosophy, physics, engineering, psychology, medicine and midwifery.
Contributors include: P.Sven Arvidson, Marcie Boucouvalas, Guy Burneko, Robbie Davis-Floyd, Brenda J. Dunne, Jeremy Hayward, Charles D. Laughlin, Evelyn Monsay, Anne Pineault, Lucia Roncalli and Joe Sheridan.
