Avicenna had to combine two accounts of knowledge that were both Aristotelian to his eyes: abstraction from sewnse-perception, and the direct grasping of intelligible Forms. The model for this reconciliation is the pseudo-Theology of Aristotle, where the Plotinian doctrine of the direct knowledge of the intelligible items has been cast in Aristotelian form.
