ACTIVE POWERS

ACTIVE POWERS was the term employed by the early Scottish philosophers to designate the moral powers, as contrasted with the "Intellectual Powers."

 

"The Active Powers," in contrast with the "Intellectual" or "Cognitive" powers, were regarded as the powers concerned with human action, as contrasted with thought. The designations are inappropriate, inasmuch as the intellectual powers are eminently active, and the moral powers must include intellectual as a first requisite (Reid's Intellectual Powers, essay I. ch. VII.; Reid's Active Powers, introd., and essay I. ch. I.; Stewart's Philosophy of the Active and Moral Powers of Man, Introd. Works, VI. 117; Hamilton's Reid, notes 242A, 511A).
