'''Mens''' est aspectus [[intellegentia]]e et [[sensus]] qui se
ostendit ut coniunctiones [[cogitatum|cogitatorum]], [[perceptio]]num, [[ memora]]rum, [[ animi motus|animorum motus]], [[voluntas libera| voluntatum liberarum]], et [[cogitatio]]num, quae omnes [[cerebrum|cerebri]] rationes, consciae et non consciae, comprehendunt. Verbum ''mentis'' saepe adhibetur ut acta cogitatorum [[ratio]]nis dicat. Intus, mens se ut [[flumen sensus]] ostendit . Sunt multae theoriae mentis et eius effectio. <!-- The earliest recorded works on the mind are by [[Zarathushtra]], the [[Gautama Buddha|Buddha]], [[Plato]], [[Aristotle]], [[Adi Shankara]] and other ancient [[Greek philosophy|Greek]], [[Indian philosophy|Indian]] and [[Islamic psychological thought|Islamic philosophers]]. Pre-scientific theories, based in [[theology]], concentrated on the relationship between the mind and the [[soul]], the supernatural, [[divinity|divine]] or god-given essence of the person. Modern theories, based on scientific understanding of the brain, theorize that the mind is a product of the brain and has both conscious and unconscious aspects.
The question of which attributes make up the mind is also much debated. Some argue that only the "higher" intellectual functions constitute mind: particularly [[reason]] and [[memory]]. In this view the emotions - [[love]], [[hate]], [[fear]], [[joy]] - are more "primitive" or subjective in nature and should be seen as different from the mind. Others argue that the rational and the emotional sides of the human person cannot be separated, that they are of the same nature and origin, and that they should all be considered as part of the individual mind.
