Birondo, Noell. "Aristotle’s Concept of Mind by Erick Raphael Jiménez (review)." Journal of the History of Philosophy, vol. 57 no. 1, 2019, pp. 162-163
In this ambitious first book, Erick Raphael Jiménez argues that a good model for understanding Aristotle’s concept of mind (nous) lies in Aristotle’s account of the perception of time. This “time-perception model” of mind and its activity, thinking, bridges a gap between Jiménez’s unorthodox readings of Aristotelian mind and its objects. The book will attract the interest of specialists in Aristotle’s psychology, as well as other scholars interested in Aristotle’s concept of mind and its influence, for instance, theologians interested in Aristotle’s tantalizing discussion of active or maker mind in De Anima 3.5 (DA).
