5 Goldman (2010, §10) notes that similar views are defended by Chalmers and Jackson (2001) and Ludwig (2007). 6 Jaakko Hintikka (1999) maintains that the term “intuition” was rarely used in twentieth‐century analytic philosophy until Chomsky and his followers popularized its use in linguistics. Andow (2015) offers quantitative evidence that there was a dramatic increase in the use of the term in philosophy starting about 1970. 7 The term “positive program,” and the term “negative program,” which we’ll encounter shortly, are widely used, though their provenance is unclear.

Philosophy 88(3): 467–474. 1 Introduction The phrase “experimental philosophy” can mean many things. In a broad sense, it covers any experimental inquiry with a philosophical purpose (Rose and Danks 2013 argue for a similarly broad understanding of “experimental philosophy”).
But grading intuitiveness does not mean that the negative program can confine itself to judgments that are not highly reflective. For example, having judged “He doesn’t know that it is 3 o’clock,” through a series of steps of consciously controlled reasoning one can conclude “A son of a child of a child of that man’s great‐grandmother in the maternal line has a justified true belief that it is 3 o’clock without knowing that it is 3 o’clock,” which counts as a highly reflective judgment by the proposed standard.
