The Brute Within

Given the richness of Aristotle’s conception of sense, the question arises of what he takes to be distinctive of the intellect and its functioning. The chapter therefore offers a detailed account of practical thought, as Aristotle conceives of it. For Aristotle, practical thought has a number of distinctive features that centre on the ability to apprehend ‘for the sake of’ relations, which include, but are not limited to, means-end relations. The chapter concludes that Aristotle has a well-grounded and defensible distinction between intellectual and non-intellectual cognition.

Keywords:   Aristotle, sense, intellect, thought, means-end
