      The immaterial powers of the mind function normally only when the material powers of the mind are functioning normally. You may notice that this Aristotelian view of the dependence of immaterial intellect and will on material sense-perception and imagination and memory comports nicely with our own experience of free will.   Across the disciplines represented, the authors demonstrate a need for a historical mind and a moral imagination to resist an idealistic, idyllic imagination. The U.S. Constitution, they contend, is the product of a historical mind animated by classical and Christian assumptions about human nature and by a realistic appraisal of Americans.

Aristotle sometimes recognizes as a distinct capacity, on par with perception and mind, imagination (phantasia) (De Anima iii 3, b33–a3).Although he does not discuss it at length, or even characterize it intrinsically in any detailed way, Aristotle does take pains to distinguish it from both perception and mind.

On the Soul (Greek: Περὶ Ψυχῆς, Peri Psychēs; Latin: De Anima) is a major treatise written by Aristotle c.

This essay explores Aristotle’s treatment of imagination. It argues that Aristotle need not be charged with the radical inconsistency in his treatment of phantasia diagnosed by Hamlyn.

Although a conceptual link can be made between imagination and a use of ‘appears’, the link is not as close as the connection between phantasia and phainesthai, nor does ‘appears’ provide the natural. Although Aristotle's theories on thought are limited to a few pages in the De Anima, somehow Mr.
