HOLZAPFEL, Cristóbal. On intuition in the thought of Karl Jaspers. Rev. filos. [online]. 2017, vol.73, pp.63-70. ISSN 0718-4360.

We examine the scope of intuition in the thought of Karl Jaspers, for which we rely especially on his “Psychology of Worldviews”, 1919. What worries the thinker there, is how a worldview (Weltanschauung) conforms. Well, it conforms, on the side of the subject, with attitude (Einstellung) and, on the side of the object, image of the world (Weltbild). What is decisive, in any case, is the attitude, since it is she who gives herself an image of the world. Between the attitude of the subject and the image of the objetual world there are the possibilities of fission, fusion and overcoming. A rational attitude is characterized by fission, since it has a distant relationship of opposition to the object, while the mystical attitude the overcoming of the subject-object relationship.And our intuitive attitude is distinguished by fusion and a maximum closeness to the object, in a certain way, to become one with him. At the same time, intuition is characterized by the immediate and instantaneous grasp of the essential of something, and it is accompanied by the assumption of the truth that is revealed by the discovery, or rather by the discovering capacity that would also be its own.
