Abstract

The article analyzes anatomic localization of Homeric θυμός і ψυχή and their interpretation as prototypes, correspondingly animus and animа of the early Latin philosophy, as suggested by Richard Broxton Onians. The article reveals two factors of untranslatability of the term animus in Ukrainian language. We are talking, first, of clearly material initial meaning of this term (strengthening the compliance of spirit /spiritus does not leave the “vaporous” analogue for animus); second, of the unique history of this term in the philosophical systems of past and of absence of the Ukrainian lexical analogue, which would concentrate the same variety of historical values.
