In philosophy, noetics is a branch of metaphysical philosophy concerned with the study of mind and intellect. Noetic topics include the doctrine of the agent/patient intellect (Aristotle, Averroes) and the doctrine of the Divine Intellect (Plotinus).
More recently[when?] the term "noetics" has been employed by several authors like Dan Brown in "the Lost Symbol" or others who write about consciousness and spirituality.
