Some philosophical methodologists claim that intuitions are “intellectual seemings” and that conceiving them as such makes the view that intuitions are treated as evidence in philosophy more palatable. I will argue in this talk that there are no good reasons to believe in intellectual seemings, and that, even if they existed, they would be methodologically irrelevant.
