ABSTRACT
QUESTION Whenever someone shows intelligence or insight, why are they said to have 'nous'? THE word nous is often used to denote insight or even common sense. I've even heard it used in reference to Wayne Rooney, who was said to have used 'tactical nous'. This idea of intuition without recourse to reasoning is close to the original Ancient Greek which coined the term.
