Augustine and 3 Kinds of Visions

Three kinds of visio:

  • corporeal: more than the physical interaction between eye and object.  Also involves the mind.  We are aware of what we see.  Intentionality.  Husserl.
  • spiritual: what the mind sees is of the same nature as itself.  Occurs in the absence of bodily sight.  
  • intellectual: the mind’s activity in interpreting the lower forms of sight.
