In philosophy, noetics is a branch of metaphysical philosophy concerned with the study of mind as well as intellect. Noetic topics include the doctrine of the agent/patient intellect (Aristotle, Averroes) and the doctrine of the Divine Intellect (Plotinus).
The unaccredited Institute of Noetic Sciences describes noetic sciences as "how beliefs, thoughts, and intentions affect the physical world".
