The Myth of the Intuitive

The MIT Press

This chapter collects more examples of philosophers arguing for their judgments about important thought experiments. Kripke’s long and multi-faceted argument for his judgment about the Godel Case is reviewed. Also described are arguments for judgments about thought experiments from Lehrer, Jackson, Searle, Davidson, and Lackey. The chapter criticizes the idea that, in any of these cases, we are meant to accept a given judgment on the basis of brute intuition alone. The second half of the chapter returns to the Relocation Problem introduced in chapter 3 and argue that it is not a genuine problem, or at least not a problem for the methods of philosophy alone. The Relocation Problem is a version of the problem known as the “regress of reasons,” but this problem is fully general, affecting all methods of inquiry equally.

Keywords:   Arguments, Intuitions, Godel Case, Kripke, Searle, Jackson, Davidson, Relocation Problem, Regress of reasons
