Chapter Summary

This chapter analyses the idea that according to the averroist Jean de Jandun, Master of Arts in Paris at the beginning of the 14th century, human beings are composed of a 'double form' the separated intellect on the one hand, the cogitative soul on the other hand. The chapter recalls several major accounts of the time, and then explores Jeans reading of Averroes major conceptions concerning the problem. It further challenges the idea according to which we observe in his writings the radical thesis of a sometimes cogitating sometimes thinking 'double human being' that makes of the homo intelligens a punctual and exclusive new being, which is accidentally produced while the thinking takes place.

Keywords: Averroes; cogitative soul; double form; Jean de Jandun
