1) Human beings are part of three diverse, non-reducible ontological dimensions: The somatic, the psychic and the noetic
, the latter being the actual human dimension.
In chapters 2 through 5 Gordon explores the four main aspects of eros, which emerge in the context of the self-cultivation required to achieve the return our original noetic
Without also attending to and cultivating the noetic
component of our rationality, we are left with only our own diverse passions and appetites as the means to make decisions about such things.
This religious epistemology must steer a course between the exclusivism of asserting one noetic
system over all others and the relativistic agnosticism of being unable to commit to any.
Luft advocates a noetic
complement to Cassirer's approach that reconstructs the depth-dimension of cultural horizons in the certainty that this dimension consists only of sedimented intentional acts interrelated according to eidetic laws of genesis.
sciences explore the "inner cosmos" of the mind (consciousness, soul and spirit) and how it relates to the "outer cosmos" of the physical world.
For example, the use of the concept "person as instrument" requires recognition of both the psychic and noetic
dimensions, as the researcher brackets personal beliefs and biases in phenomenological inquiry, in the sense of the epoche (or bracketing) of Husserl (1931, 1970).
DR MITCHELL W Krucoff, Professor of Medicine/ cardiology and Director of the Cardiovascular Devices Unit at DUKE university also made a presentation on the MANTRA study project (Monitoring and Actualisation of Noetic
Training), which examines the therapeutic effects of music, imagery, touch and prayers, projecting these as useful adjuncts to cardiovascular care.

Science was created in 1973 by former astronaut Edgar Mitchell and industrialist Paul Temple.
According to the NYT the plot follows Robert Langdon again, "the rare symbologist who warrants the word dashing as both adjective and verb," accompanied by Dr Katherine Solomon, a specialist in noetic
science, with its focus on mind-body connections.
Jonathan Kvanvig's 'Two Approaches to Epistemic Defeat' compares his (Kvanvig's) own 'front-door' approach to epistemic defeat, which is a 'propositionalist' account beginning 'with propositional relationships, only by implication describing what happens in the context of a noetic
system,' with Plantinga's 'backdoor' approach, which is a 'doxasticist' account assuming 'a context of actual belief and an entire noetic
After a preliminary discussion of the general philosophical context within which Anaxagoras' thought is to be comprehended, I begin by distinguishing between noetic
stuff in general (nous, or 'something') and nous as a definite something (hereafter Nous, or 'some thing'); this distinction reasonably supports the hypothesis that it is the latter rather than the former which is cosmogonically efficacious.
