INTUITIVE AND DISCURSIVE ASPECTS OF FORMATION OF THE SCIENTIFIC IMAGE OF THE WORLD
Lipsky B. I.



        Boris Ivanovich Lipsky is Doctor of Philolsophy, Professor, Head of Department of Ontology and Theory of Cognition at Saint Petersburg State University.


Annotation

The perspective through which we consider the world is the foundation basis of its theoretical image. Hence, the character of this image will largely depend on the subjective viewpoint. The latter is usually labeled "intellectual intuition", the concept usually attributed to R. Descartes. In its further development this concept rather extensively departs from intelligence proper being somewhat interpreted as something conflicting or even opposed to it.

The intuitive image which lays the groundwork for discursive reasoning resembles the first draught sketch delineating the general contour of the forthcoming theoretical image. Such a "preliminary sketch", the eidos, is formed owing to ideation which is perceived as a special sort of intuition providing the direct insight into the nature, essence of the phenomenon.

        Key words: discourse, intellect, intention, intuition, scientific image of the world, subjectivity, essence, reality, eidos.
