SANTA-MARIA, Andrés. El intelectualismo socrático y su recepción en Aristóteles. Nova tellus [online]. 2008, vol.26, n.1, pp. 115-150. ISSN 0185-3058.
The aim of this paper is to review some of the systematic connections between Socrates' and Aristotle's thinking about action and its motivational mechanism. To this purpose, I will start by presenting an interpretation of the socalled 'Socratic intellectualism' in a 'milder' version, based on the possibility of understanding the concept of (identified by Socrates with ) in a more comprehensive way. This concept will be seen in the light of certain passages in which the Platonic Socrates refers to his own ignorance and to his famous irony. Further, I will briefly review Aristotle's critic of the Socratic position, and I will point out those Socratic intuitions to which Aristotle is, at all events, indebted in his theory of action.
