Les deux textes en dialogue qui constituent la trame de ce livre sont une méditation sur le fantasme comme lieu et sujet de l'amour. Mêlant références et implications, ils proposent de confronter dans une perspective inédite deux personnages exceptionnels: Guido Cavalcanti, le "premier ami" de Dante et maître inégalé de la phénoménologie amoureuse, et Ibn Rushd, l'Averroès des Latins, le philosophe arabe qui aura le plus profondément marqué la pensée occidentale du XIIIe au XVIe siècle. Si pour ces deux auteurs la jonction avec l'intellect unique désigne la perfection suprême, c'est la fonction du fantasme qui, chaque fois, se révèle décisive. De quelle façon les pensées nous appartiennent-elles ? Comment une idée peut-elle devenir "mienne" ? C'est le fantasme - telle est la réponse du poète et du philosophe - qui, par le désir, fait l'intelligence propre au sujet. Mais jusqu'où ? Pour le poète, si le fantasme doit périr pour que la jonction amoureuse ait lieu, l'individu immodérément affecté ne survit que comme un automate ou comme la statue de lui-même ; pour le philosophe, qui défend l'abolition de l'image et son désir permanent, l'espèce humaine dans son ensemble advient comme sujet politique de la félicité.

This paper studies the analogy set forth by Averroes in his Great Commentary on the De anima between the material intellect and the transparent medium. The overall context of the present inquiry is the 'question of Theophrastus' concerning the nature of the material intellect. The paper argues that the analogy between material intellect and transparent medium arises because, just like the transparent medium, the material intellect’s functioning requires a prior actualization: just as colors shine through the transparent medium only insofar as it is itself actually illuminated, the material intellect can receive intelligible forms only insofar as it is fundamentally actualized by the agent intellect. The aim of this paper is thus to reconsider the nature of the material intellect’s potency and its formal relation to the agent intellect.

A widespread historiographic commonplace, established by Thomas Aquinas himself in his Tractatus de unitate intellectus (1270), takes Siger of Brabant’s Quaestiones in tertium de anima (ca. 1265) to be a latin formulation of Ibn Rušd’s theory of the unity of the material intellect as exposed in the Tafsīr Kitāb al-Nafs (Long Commentary on the De anima, ca. 1186); according to the same view, Aquinas’ philosophy of mind would be the expression of a strongly antiaverroistic – and therefore more orthodox – kind of aristotelianism. Building on a thorough analysis of key texts in Aquinas’ Commentary on the Sentences (1255), I argue in this paper that those who hold Aquinas’ noetic to be anti-averroistic are greatly mistaken: while Siger’s always superficial rushdian inspiration is better understood against the background of a neoplatonic-tinged mind-body dualism clearly at odds with Ibn Rušd’s own strictly peripatetic ontology, Aquinas’ psychology, hylomorfic and not-dualist at its core, is aristotelian mainly inasmuch as it is rushdian.

This essay is about the understanding of the notion of active intellect in Ibn Bāǧǧa (Avempace) and Ibn Rushd (Averroës). The traditional interpretation of both Avempace’s and Averroës’ concept of active intellect is that they both understand it as the lowest celestial intelligence which is dator formarum, and that man thinks and cognizes intelligibles only by “connecting” with it in a quasi-mystic way; cognition being the active intellect’s granting ideas (formae or concepts) to man’s intellect. The author believes that both in Avempace’s and Averroës’ theory of cognition the notion of active intellect is only the highest function of human intellect, not a celestial entity. Based on such a presumption, as well as on the analysis of his theory, Avempace’s notion of iṭṭiṣāl bi-’aql fa’āl is interpreted not as a kind of mystic “conjunction” or “union” with a separate celestial entity, but as reaching the highest level of man’s intellect function in the continuity of the process of thinking. The same goes for Averroës’ theory, which is quite clearly presented in his Epistle on the Possibility of Conjunction with the Active Intellect, where one can find practically direct confirmation for such an interpretation, because Averroës says that “conjunction with it seems to resemble more the conjunction of form in matter than it does the conjunction of agent with effect. The well-known difference between agent and effect is that the agent is external, but here there is no external agent”, or that active intellect “conjoins with us from the outset by conjunction of in-existence”. The author concludes that the issue of the active intellect in Islamic philosophy is not disambiguous – for different thinkers it was a different concept – only the function of the active intellect is always one and the same: producing ideas.

This paper examines Pomponazzi's arguments against Averroes in his De Immortalitate Animae, focusing on the question whether thought is possible without a body. The first part of the paper will sketch the history of the problem, namely the interpretation of Aristotle's remarks about the intellect in De Anima 3.4-5, touching on Alexander, Themistius, and Averroes. The second part will focus on Pomponazzi's response to Averroes, including his use of arguments by Aquinas. It will conclude by suggesting that Pomponazzi's discussion stands as the first properly modern account of Aristotle's psychology.

The relationship between the material intellect and the active intellect is an important issue in the realm of epistemology in Islamic philosophy. The aim of the present study is to compare the views of Averroes and Al-Farabi in this regard. Reviewing their theories, this study shows that both the mentioned philosophers agree upon the fact that the Active Intellect exists apart from human soul and acts as a creator of forms, but as for the relationship between the Material Intellect and the Active Intellect, there is disagreement between Averroes and Al-Farabi. Averroes believes that in some aspects both of them are the same yet they are different in some other aspects, namely regarding their acts they are different because the active intellect acts as creator of forms while the material intellect is just receiver of the forms. Nevertheless, they are the same, since the material intellect achieves perfection through the active intellect, whereas in Al-Farabi’s opinion, ontologically speaking; the material intellect and the active intellect are different in their existence. The material intellect in al-Farabi’s perspective is one of the stages of human intellect that is inherent in human soul, whereas the active intellect is an immaterial substance that exists apart from human soul.

Siger of Brabant sketches in his Quaestiones in tertium de anima (ca. 1269) a noetic theory defending the unity of the intellect that is usually considered as a latin formulation of Ibn Rušd’s theory of the separateness of the material intellect as put forth in the Long Commentary on the De anima (ca. 1186). A closer look at key texts in both the Quaestiones and the Long Commentary will give us a quite different picture: while Siger works out his theory on the background of a dualistic anthropology that takes the union between the intellective soul (conceived as an hoc aliquid) and the human body to be only operational, Ibn Rušd (who develops his theory starting from strictly aristotelic epistemological premises) repeatedly stresses throughout the Long Commentary that, if man is an agent of thought, the union between the separate intellects and the thinking individual ought to be always hylomorphic. This paper aims at showing that, although Siger has often been identified as an averroist, his psychology is certainly not rushdian.

A widespread historiographic commonplace, established by Thomas Aquinas himself in his Tractatus de unitate intellectus (1270), takes Siger of Brabant’s Quaestiones in tertium de anima (ca. 1265) to be a latin formulation of Ibn Rušd’s theory of the unity of the material intellect as exposed in the Tafsīr Kitāb al-Nafs (Long Commentary on the De anima, ca. 1186); according to the same view, Aquinas’ philosophy of mind would be the expression of a strongly antiaverroistic – and therefore more orthodox – kind of aristotelianism. Building on a thorough analysis of key texts in Aquinas’ Commentary on the Sentences (1255), I argue in this paper that those who hold Aquinas’ noetic to be anti-averroistic are greatly mistaken: while Siger’s always superficial rushdian inspiration is better understood against the background of a neoplatonic-tinged mind-body dualism clearly at odds with Ibn Rušd’s own strictly peripatetic ontology, Aquinas’ psychology, hylomorfic and not-dualist at its core, is aristotelian mainly inasmuch as it is rushdian.

This paper studies the analogy set forth by Averroes in his Great Commentary on the De anima between the material intellect and the transparent medium. The overall context of the present inquiry is the 'question of Theophrastus' concerning the nature of the material intellect. The paper argues that the analogy between material intellect and transparent medium arises because, just like the transparent medium, the material intellect’s functioning requires a prior actualization: just as colors shine through the transparent medium only insofar as it is itself actually illuminated, the material intellect can receive intelligible forms only insofar as it is fundamentally actualized by the agent intellect. The aim of this paper is thus to reconsider the nature of the material intellect’s potency and its formal relation to the agent intellect.

Depuis le Moyen Âge, le Grand Commentaire d’Averroès au De anima d’Aristote n’était connu des philosophes occidentaux que dans sa version latine, datant du XIIIe siècle. Des gloses en arabe dictées à des élèves philosophes juifs et espagnols au XVe siècle, ont été transcrites en caractères hébraïques et conservées dans un manuscrit de la Bibliothèque Estense de Modène. Le texte de ces gloses n’est pas identique à l’original arabe traduit en latin, mais elles portent témoignage de versions multiples et différentes. L’édition de la partie du Commentaire traitant de l’intellect est proposée ici.

Les deux textes en dialogue qui constituent la trame de ce livre sont une méditation sur le fantasme comme lieu et sujet de l'amour. Mêlant références et implications, ils proposent de confronter dans une perspective inédite deux personnages exceptionnels: Guido Cavalcanti, le "premier ami" de Dante et maître inégalé de la phénoménologie amoureuse, et Ibn Rushd, l'Averroès des Latins, le philosophe arabe qui aura le plus profondément marqué la pensée occidentale du XIIIe au XVIe siècle. Si pour ces deux auteurs la jonction avec l'intellect unique désigne la perfection suprême, c'est la fonction du fantasme qui, chaque fois, se révèle décisive. De quelle façon les pensées nous appartiennent-elles ? Comment une idée peut-elle devenir "mienne" ? C'est le fantasme - telle est la réponse du poète et du philosophe - qui, par le désir, fait l'intelligence propre au sujet. Mais jusqu'où ? Pour le poète, si le fantasme doit périr pour que la jonction amoureuse ait lieu, l'individu immodérément affecté ne survit que comme un automate ou comme la statue de lui-même ; pour le philosophe, qui défend l'abolition de l'image et son désir permanent, l'espèce humaine dans son ensemble advient comme sujet politique de la félicité.

M\u00ealant r\u00e9f\u00e9rences et implications, ils proposent de confronter dans une perspective in\u00e9dite deux personnages exceptionnels: Guido Cavalcanti, le \"premier ami\" de Dante et ma\u00eetre in\u00e9gal\u00e9 de la ph\u00e9nom\u00e9nologie amoureuse, et Ibn Rushd, l'Averro\u00e8s des Latins, le philosophe arabe qui aura le plus profond\u00e9ment marqu\u00e9 la pens\u00e9e occidentale du XIIIe au XVIe si\u00e8cle. Si pour ces deux auteurs la jonction avec l'intellect unique d\u00e9signe la perfection supr\u00eame, c'est la fonction du fantasme qui, chaque fois, se r\u00e9v\u00e8le d\u00e9cisive. De quelle fa\u00e7on les pens\u00e9es nous appartiennent-elles ? Comment une id\u00e9e peut-elle devenir \"mienne\" ? C'est le fantasme - telle est la r\u00e9ponse du po\u00e8te et du philosophe - qui, par le d\u00e9sir, fait l'intelligence propre au sujet. Mais jusqu'o\u00f9 ?
