    Intuition is already a long-standing concern but it is often used as an "umbrella term", just as decision-making was in the past. For many years, under the influence of the tradition of heuristics and biases (HB), intuitive processes and outcomes have been considered as inefficient mental shortcuts. Then, a relative turn-around for research into intuition currently gives rise to many publications which show a great vivacity in many disciplines. 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.
