...ancient man never separated knowledge from salvation. For him the search for knowledge was the search for a better state of being...

To purify and restrain the isolated intellect was part of his effort to be aware of the whole of himself. To know nature meant to experience himself in his proper cosmic place.

Only then could the urge to be active make sense. Only then could he know what to "do". Because it is, surely, emotion which can tell us what to do, which can tell us what is needful, and, finally, which can connect us with a mind, obedience to which is a necessity for perfecting our lives.
