A Study of Intuitive Thinking.
Goethe, Susan E. A. M.
The development and use of intuitive thinking, at all levels of education, have been of concern to scholars in recent years. This paper discusses the findings and theories of various scholars about intuitive thinking and learning, including the work of Jean Piaget, Jerome Bruner, Richard Jones, and Robert Ornstein. The paper also explores the use of language and communication in relation to intuitive thinking in various cultures, as well as insight and creative thinking as aspects of intuitive thinking. The author concludes that, for problem solving, individual students may need both logical-thinking experiences and creative experiences and that individual student cognition is required for learning to be realized.
