The active intellect (Latin: intellectus agens; also translated as agent intellect, active intelligence, active reason, or productive intellect) is a concept in classical and medieval philosophy. The term refers to the formal (morphe) aspect of the intellect (nous), in accordance with the theory of hylomorphism.

The nature of the active intellect was the subject of intense discussion in medieval philosophy, as various Muslim, Jewish and Christian thinkers sought to reconcile their commitment to Aristotle’s account of the body and soul to their own theological commitments. At stake in particular was in what way Aristotle’s account of an incorporeal soul might contribute to understanding of the nature of eternal life.

The idea is first encountered in Aristotle’s De Anima, Book III. Following is the translation of one of those passages (De Anima, Bk. III, ch. 5, 430a10-25) by Joe Sachs, with some notes about the Greek:[1]

…since in nature one thing is the material (hulē) for each kind (genos) (this is what is in potency all the particular things of that kind) but it is something else that is the causal and productive thing by which all of them are formed, as is the case with an art in relation to its material, it is necessary in the soul (psuchē) too that these distinct aspects be present;

Random information on the term “WITS”:

Bidvest Wits Football Club, previously known as Wits University F.C. is a South African football club based in the Braamfontein suburb of the city of Johannesburg that plays in the Premier Soccer League. It is nicknamed “The Clever Boys” or “The Students” because of the close affiliation with the University of the Witwatersrand.

The club has its roots at Wits University in Johannesburg, where it was formed in 1921 by the university’s Students Representatives Council. The club competed in a variety of tournaments and leagues before eventually winning promotion to the National Football League in 1975 – then South Africa’s top domestic league.

During the 1970s the club produced some of South Africa’s finest players – amongst them goalkeeper Gary Bailey, who went on to play for Manchester United and England and defender Richard Gough, who later played for Rangers, Everton and Scotland.

The club won their first major title in 1978 – winning the Mainstay Cup after beating Kaizer Chiefs in the final of the competition. Six years later they picked up the BP Top 8, and a year later in 1985 they again beat Chiefs, this time in the final of the JPS Knockout Cup. The club finished 6th in the inaugural NSL season in 1985 while Scottish striker Frank McGrellis was crowned the league’s top scorer with a total of 29 league and cup goals.
