This groundbreaking interdisciplinary Handbook showcases the latest intuition research, providing an integrated framework that reconciles opposing views on what intuition is and how it works. The internationally renowned group of contributors explores different facets of the intuiting process and its outcome, the role of consciousness and affect in intuition, and alternate ways of capturing it. They tackle the function of intuition in expertise, strategy, entrepreneurship, and ethics and outline intuitive decision-making in the legal profession, medicine, film and wine industry, and teaching. The Handbook pushes the boundaries of our current understanding by exploring the possibility of non-local intuition based on the principles of quantum holography and investigating new techniques for developing intuitive skills.

Part III outlines intuitive decision making in critical occupations, the legal profession, medicine, the film and wine industries, and teaching. Part IV pushes the boundaries of our current understanding by exploring the possibility of non local intuition, based on the principles of quantum holography.

This cutting-edge, comprehensive Handbook will prove essential for academics and research students of the social sciences, particularly management, psychology, sociology, entrepreneurship, leadership, team dynamics, HR and training. It will also be an invaluable resource for industry professionals searching for soft-core methods to increase productivity and creativity/innovation, to improve leadership and organizational climate, or to adopt new staff training and development methods.
Critical Acclaim
‘Research on intuition - and the very​ definition of the concept - is highly controversial and the entire book illustrates ​the discordant views to which it gives rise. The work has been written with a clear intention: to lead intuition out of a retrenched area, dealing with sub-scientific processes and outcomes, and to give us fresh knowledge, specifically within and between cognitive psychology and neuroscience research. It discusses not only widely recognized works, but also other, less advanced contributions that prompt further research on the subject. We are left with no certainties once we are done reading, but rather a very stimulating invitation to continue exploring, and in particular in the domain of management, which was one of the very first fields to be concerned with intuition.​‘​
