Skepticism about the epistemic value of intuition in theoretical and philosophical inquiry
has recently been bolstered by empirical research suggesting that people’s concrete-case
intuitions are vulnerable to irrational biases (e.g., the order effect). What is more, skeptics
argue that we have no way to ‘‘calibrate” our intuitions against these biases and no way of
anticipating intuitional instability. This paper challenges the skeptical position, introducing
data from two studies that suggest not only that people’s concrete-case intuitions are often
stable, but also that people have introspective awareness of this stability, providing a
promising means by which to assess the epistemic value of our intuitions.
