A Review of the Novel Intuition

Jewish American novelist Allegra Goodman was already delving deep into such issues before this scandal broke in January 2006. In her most recent novel Intuition, Goodman offers an unflinching look at the strengths and weaknesses of a diverse cast of characters as they confront the real-life pressures inherent in scientific research today. Goodman weaves a host of themes throughout the progression of her narrative, including the role of perception in defining reality; competing epistemologies; and the place of individual recognition and achievement in a collective atmosphere.
