Plato's theory of "Ideas" as the core of his philosophy, based on reasons and arguments (in comparison with inspiration and intuition) introduces Ideas as units that explain plurality and real beings and objects of the knowledge and necessary condition of it.
"Intuition" is immediate knowledge of Ideas cognition. Although Plato's description of intuition is not so clear and detailed, but it can be inferred in relation to Plato's doctrine of vision, that is the closest event to it, based on allegories, allusions, linguistics, and context indications. The consistency of these conclusions with the myth of the Soul's Cycles in Phaedrus makes it clear that the real intuition is different from dream and inspiration, and although it is independent from medians of language or reason in existence, it needs to them for being proved. Therefore, human’s intuition is common, essential, and reasonable; by the way it could be relative, and by criterion, true or false. Reading Intuition on the basis of vision, considering the causality of light, brings up some conclusions that the most important of them is the unity of the world.
