From Intuition to Insight

Brinck, Ingar LU orcid (2000) In Konferenser / Kungl. Vitterhets historie och antikvitets akademien 48. p.39-52
Abstract
The article discusses the role of intuition for insight. Creativity provides heuristic solutions to problems that are intractable if approached in standard, algorithmic ways. Intuition is claimed to occur during the incubation phase (Wallas 1926) and to crucially depend on embodied memory and unconscious processing of memories, such as reconstruction and recreation. Two suggestions as to how memory contributes to intuition, and by which processes are analysed and compared: Barsalou & Prinz’ (1997) and Langley & Jones’ (1988).
