When it comes to humans, ingenium expresses, the innate element of productivity in him, of creativity, the capacity to surpass and transform the given, that it is about the intellectual speculation, the poetic and artistic creation, persuasive speech, technical innovations, social and political practices. « A powerful ingenium » writes Cicero, « is necessary to detach one’s mind from the senses, and detach one’s thought from habits. » Giovan Battista Vico described ingenium as the « original and generating power of the mind » and gives it a central place in the life of nations, he makes ingenium the human faculty par excellence, when men create “poetically” their world.
