IAS Fellow's Public Lecture - Can there be Intuitive Evidence?
In contemporary culture we invariably think that our beliefs and our knowledge should be solely based on objective evidence: the sort of evidence that science studies and produces; the sort that is, as the OED puts it, “available”, meaning that it is accessible to anyone under the right circumstances. In this talk Dr David Macarthur's aim will be to argue that we have allowed this scientific conception of objective evidence to obscure another important category of evidence from view. He will call it intuitive evidence. This kind of evidence is subjective, non-scientific, and not universally accessible but only available to those who have the requisite ‘eye’ (or ‘ear’ or ‘nose’) for it.
This lecture is free and open to all.
