Here is a synopsis of Professor Loux's talk: Although Aristotle thinks that, in the biological arena at least, intellectual activity is unique to and distinctive of human beings, he never gives a straightforward answer to the question, "What is thinking?" He provides a number of different and seemingly unrelated characterizations of thought. Do those characterizations add up to a complete and consistent theory? That's the question we will try to answer in this lecture.
