How can we create conditions for higher education which develop a student’s ability to acquire meaningful knowledge and take actions that carry the stamp of reality? How can we create conditions where the students develop the capacity to do their very best, even in a changing, complicated and unforeseen situation? This article emphasises the role of intuition in the learning process where rational knowing alone does not suffice. To my epistemological suppositions of different aspects of intuition I attach some practical, didactic examples applied to a university course in psychology. I deal with knowledge that is complex, problematising, personal, empathetic, strategic, and in a real-life context.
