noesis <philosophical terminology> Greek word for intuition or thinking; the operation of nous without benefit of the discursive reasoning that characterizes di-noia. According to Plato, such awareness represents the highest portion of human knowledge. From this foundation, Plotinus developed a detailed theory of the operation of the human soul in relation to the world. Husserl later appropriated this Greek term in order to emphasize the characteristic intentionality of mental acts. Recommended reading: F.E.
