Noesis

Noesis is a Greek word meaning "the ability to sense or know something immediately".In phenomenology, it is an act of consciousness. "Thinking", "loving", "hating", "imagining" are all verbs applying to what minds do. One would never call "loving" a belief, because it is something you "do", not something you merely hold to be true.
