This diagram shows the medieval understanding of spheres of the cosmos, derived from Aristotle, and as per the standard explanation by Ptolemy. In Aristotle’s influential works, the term was carefully distinguished from sense perception, imagination, and reason, although these terms are closely inter-related.

The term was apparently already singled out by earlier philosophers such as Parmenides, whose works are largely lost. In the Aristotelian scheme, nous is the basic understanding or awareness that allows human beings to think rationally. For Aristotle, this was distinct from the processing of sensory perception, including the use of imagination and memory, which other animals can do. The earliest surviving text that uses the word nous is the Iliad. In early Greek uses, Homer used nous to signify mental activities of both mortals and immortals, for example what they really have on their mind as opposed to what they say aloud.

It was one of several words related to thought, thinking, and perceiving with the mind. Among some Greek authors, a faculty of intelligence known as a « higher mind » came to be considered as a property of the cosmos as a whole. The work of Parmenides set the scene for Greek philosophy to come and the concept of nous was central to his radical proposals. He claimed that reality as the senses perceive it is not a world of truth at all, because sense perception is so unreliable, and what is perceived is so uncertain and changeable.

All other things partake in a portion of everything, while nous is infinite and self-ruled, and is mixed with nothing, but is alone, itself by itself. Concerning cosmology, Anaxagoras, like some Greek philosophers already before him, believed the cosmos was revolving, and had formed into its visible order as a result of such revolving causing a separating and mixing of different types of chemical elements. Anaxagoras’ concept of nous was distinct from later platonic and neoplatonic cosmologies in many ways, which were also influenced by Eleatic, Pythagorean and other pre-Socratic ideas, as well as the Socratics themselves. Xenophon, the less famous of the two students of Socrates whose written accounts of him have survived, recorded that he taught his students a kind of teleological justification of piety and respect for divine order in nature. Plato used the word nous in many ways that were not unusual in the everyday Greek of the time, and often simply meant « good sense » or « awareness ». On the other hand, in some of his Platonic dialogues it is described by key characters in a higher sense, which was apparently already common.

Concerning the nous that is the source of understanding of individuals, Plato is widely understood to have used ideas from Parmenides in addition to Anaxagoras. Like Parmenides, Plato argued that relying on sense perception can never lead to true knowledge, only opinion. Just exactly how Plato believed that the nous of people lets them come to understand things in any way that improves upon sense perception and the kind of thinking which animals have, is a subject of long running discussion and debate. As in Xenophon, Plato’s Socrates frequently describes the soul in a political way, with ruling parts, and parts that are by nature meant to be ruled. Concerning the cosmos, in the Timaeus, the title character also tells a « likely story » in which nous is responsible for the creative work of the demiurge or maker who brought rational order to our universe. This craftsman imitated what he perceived in the world of eternal Forms.

Like Plato, Aristotle saw the nous or intellect of an individual as somehow similar to sense perception but also distinct. Aristotle’s philosophical works continue many of the same Socratic themes as his teacher Plato. Amongst the new proposals he made was a way of explaining causality, and nous is an important part of his explanation. As mentioned above, Plato criticized Anaxagoras’ materialism, or understanding that the intellect of nature only set the cosmos in motion, but is no longer seen as the cause of physical events. Aristotle analyzed thinking in the same way.

For him, the possibility of understanding rests on the relationship between intellect and sense perception. This sort of intellect is separate, as well as being without attributes and unmixed, since it is by its thinghood a being-at-work , for what acts is always distinguished in stature above what is acted upon, as a governing source is above the material it works on. Knowledge , in its being-at-work, is the same as the thing it knows, and while knowledge in potency comes first in time in any one knower, in the whole of things it does not take precedence even in time. The passage tries to explain « how the human intellect passes from its original state, in which it does not think, to a subsequent state, in which it does » according to his distinction between potentiality and actuality. Just what Aristotle meant by potential intellect and active intellect – terms not even explicit in the De anima and at best implied – and just how he understood the interaction between them remains moot. Students of the history of philosophy continue to debate Aristotle’s intent, particularly the question whether he considered the active intellect to be an aspect of the human soul or an entity existing independently of man. The passage is often read together with Metaphysics, Book XII, ch.

7-10, where Aristotle makes nous as an actuality a central subject within a discussion of the cause of being and the cosmos. It should be noted that for Aristotle soul and nous are not the same. Until the early modern era, much of the discussion which has survived today concerning nous or intellect, in Europe, Africa and the Middle East, concerned how to correctly interpret Aristotle and Plato. However, at least during the classical period, materialist philosophies, more similar to modern science, such as Epicureanism, were still relatively common also. To the Stoics, more like Heraclitus than Anaxagoras, order in the cosmos comes from an entity called logos, the cosmic reason.
