La théorie thomiste de l'intellect agent et ses équivoques dans Summa theologica, Quaestiones disputatae de anima et De unitate intellectus

Chôra 7:299-314 (2011)
The objective of this article is to analyze some of the ambiguities of the Thomistic theory related to the agent intellect. Precisely, it is about those contradictionsor confusions that appeared as a consequence of Saint Thomas necessity to prove the existence and continuity of intellectual human activity after the death. These ideas are mainly found in Quaestiones disputatae de anima, where they generate two doctrines relatively opposed with regards to agent intellect, but they do not completely vanish in Summa theologica
