What are the roots of the Intelligence question, i.e. since when do "humans" think about what "Intelligence" means and where it actually comes from?

I did some digging in the greek philosophy around the topic of "Nous", though it seems the roots go way deeper - unfortunately not finding any proper sources. Hence: Does anyone know about the "Origin of the Intelligence question?"? (Preferably with sources)

  • $\begingroup$ @BryanKrause May you reason your suggestion? Aren't Intelligence theories (and their history) fundamentally linked to the origins of philosophy (and later on Neuroscience) - the question of "being"? $\endgroup$ – J. Doe Oct 4 '20 at 15:46

    $\begingroup$ Because you are asking a history question. HSM is the stack for the history of science (and math). And this stack is not for Philosophy. $\endgroup$ – Bryan Krause Oct 4 '20 at 15:51
