The present article pertains to the notion of operans intrinsecum that Siger of Brabant, in response to Thomas Aquinas, places at the heart of his De anima intellectiva in order to reconsider the intellect’s relationship to the body. Drawing upon the model of celestial auto-motricity, the author aims to show two things. First, Siger finds in the Aquinate the elements for his own solution (without simply transferring the thomasian position). Second, he does so pertinently by recovering in Thomas Aquinas one of the muted but decisive sources for his cosmology: Averroes. Far from being a miserable escape hence decried, or even a first step toward Thomas’ noetic, the “intrinsic operant” is the subtle and sound concept of a master capably enriching his contested exegesis of the De anima with averroist physics.

The Aristotelian theme of the identity of the intellect and of the intelligibleis of the utmost importance in Averroes' noetics. This latter, studied in the Latin translations that the Latin philosophers of the thirteenth century scrutinized, rigourously develop this theme so as to preserve the supraempirical and transcendant character of necessary truth that human thinking identifies, thereto sacrificing the individual uniqueness of the intellective operation in its final instance. A Latin Master of the thirteenth century, Thomas Aquinas, adopts Averroes' insight into the transcendence of the noetic, and confirms it, even as he defends the strictly personal character of human intellection.
