Commentary on the Ukrainian translation of Sextus Empiricus' "Outlines on Pyrrhonism" (I, 1-13)




Stoicism, impression, representation, incomprehensibility, passion


 Some terms from Outlines of Pyrrhonism (I: 1-13) are problematic for Ukrainian translation. The commentary justifies the Ukrainian equivalents for those terms, in particular, "uyavlennia" for phantasia (not "vrazhennia"!), "pidvplyvnyi stan" for pathos (not "passion"!), "pomirnopidvplyvnist" for metriopatheia, "neosiagnennist" for akatalepsia,
