ănĭmus , i, m. a Graeco-Italic form of ἄνεμος = wind (as ego, lego, of ἐγώ, λέγω); cf. Sanscr. an = to breathe, anas = breath, anilas = wind; Goth. uz-ana = exspiro; Erse, anal = breath; Germ. Unst = a storm (so, sometimes); but Curt. does not extend the connection to ΑΩ, ἄημι = to blow; a modification of animus—by making which the Romans took a step in advance of the Greeks, who used ψυχή for both these ideas—is anima, which has the physical meaning of ἄνεμος, so that Cic. was theoretically right, but historically wrong, when he said, ipse animus ab animā dictus est, Tusc. 1, 9, 19; after the same analogy we have from ψύχω = to breathe, blow, ψυχή = breath, life, soul; from πνέω = to breathe, πνεῦμα = air, breath, life, in class. Greek, and = spirit, a spiritual being, in Hellenistic Greek; from spiro = to breathe, blow, spiritus = breath, breeze, energy, high spirit, and poet. and post-Aug. = soul, mind; the Engl. ghost = Germ. Geist may be comp. with Germ. giessen and χέω, to pour, and for this interchange of the ideas of gases and liquids, cf. Sol. 22: insula adspiratur freto Gallico, is flowed upon, washed, by the Gallic Strait; the Sanscr. ātman = breath, soul, with which comp. ἀϋτμή = breath; Germ. Odem = breath, and Athem = breath, soul, with which group Curt. connects αὔω, ἄημι; the Heb. = breath, life, soul; and = breath, wind, life, spirit, soul or mind.
I. In a general sense, the rational soul in man (in opp. to the body, corpus, and to the physical life, anima), ψυχή: “humanus animus decerptus ex mente divinā,Cic. Tusc. 5, 13, 38: “Corpus animum praegravat, Atque affixit humo divinae particulam aurae,Hor. S. 2, 2, 77: “credo deos immortales sparsisse animos in corpora humana, ut essent qui terras tuerentur etc.,Cic. Sen. 21, 77: “eas res tueor animi non corporis viribus,id. ib. 11, 38; so id. Off. 1, 23, 79: “quae (res) vel infirmis corporibus animo tamen administratur,id. Sen. 6, 15; id. Off. 1, 29, 102: “omnes animi cruciatus et corporis,id. Cat. 4, 5, 10: “levantes Corpus et animum,Hor. Ep. 2, 1, 141: “formam et figuram animi magis quam corporis complecti,Tac. Agr. 46; id. H. 1, 22: “animi validus et corpore ingens,id. A. 15, 53: “Aristides primus animum pinxit et sensus hominis expressit, quae vocantur Graece ethe, item perturbationes,first painted the soul, put a soul into his figures, Plin. 35, 10, 36, § 98 (cf.: “animosa signa,life-like statues, Prop. 4, 8, 9): si nihil esset in eo (animo), nisi id, ut per eum viveremus, i. e. were it mere anima, Cic. Tusc. 1, 24, 56: “Singularis est quaedam natura atque vis animi, sejuncta ab his usitatis notisque naturis, i. e. the four material elements,id. ib. 1, 27, 66: Neque nos corpora sumus. Cum igitur nosce te dicit, hoc dicit, nosce animum tuum, id. ib. 1, 22, 52: “In quo igitur loco est (animus)? Credo equidem in capite,id. ib. 1, 29, 70: “corpora nostra, terreno principiorum genere confecta, ardore animi concalescunt,derive their heat from the fiery nature of the soul, id. ib. 1, 18, 42: “Non valet tantum animus, ut se ipsum ipse videat: at, ut oculus, sic animus, se non videns alia cernit,id. ib. 1, 27, 67: foramina illa (the senses), quae patent ad animum a corpore, callidissimo artificio natura fabricata est, id. ib. 1, 20, 47: dum peregre est animus sine corpore velox, independently of the body, i. e. the mind roaming in thought, Hor. Ep. 1, 12, 13: “discessus animi a corpore,Cic. Tusc. 1, 9, 18; 1, 30, 72: “cum nihil erit praeter animum,when there shall be nothing but the soul, when the soul shall be disembodied, id. ib. 1, 20, 47; so, “animus vacans corpore,id. ib. 1, 22, 50; and: “animus sine corpore,id. ib. 1, 22, 51: “sine mente animoque nequit residere per artus pars ulla animaï,Lucr. 3, 398 (for the pleonasm here, v. infra, II. A. 1.): “Reliquorum sententiae spem adferunt posse animos, cum e corporibus excesserint in caelum pervenire,Cic. Tusc. 1, 11, 24: “permanere animos arbitramur consensu nationum omnium,id. ib. 1, 16, 36: “Pherecydes primus dixit animos esse hominum sempiternos,id. ib. 1, 16, 38: “Quod ni ita se haberet, ut animi immortales essent, haud etc.,id. Sen. 23, 82: immortalitas animorum, id. ib. 21, 78; id. Tusc. 1, 11, 24; 1, 14, 30: “aeternitas animorum,id. ib. 1, 17, 39; 1, 22, 50 (for the plur. animorum, in this phrase, cf. Cic. Sen. 23, 84); for the atheistic notions about the soul, v. Lucr. bk. iii.—
II. In a more restricted sense, the mind as thinking, feeling, willing, the intellect, the sensibility, and the will, acc. to the almost universally received division of the mental powers since the time of Kant (Diog. Laert. 8, 30, says that Pythagoras divided ψυχή into νοῦς, αἱ φρένες, and θυμός; and that man had νοῦς and θυμός in common with other animals, but he alone had αἱ φρένες. Here νοῦς and θυμός must denote the understanding and the sensibility, and αἱ φρένες, the reason. Plutarch de Placit. 4, 21, says that the Stoics called the supreme faculty of the mind (τὸ ἡγεμονικὸν τῆς ψυχῆς) λογισμός, reason. Cic. sometimes speaks of a twofold division; as, Est animus in partes tributus duas, quarum altera rationis est particeps, altera expers (i. e. τὸ λογιστικόν and τὸ ἄλογον of Plato; cf. Tert. Anim. 16), i. e. the reason or intellect and the sensibility, Tusc. 2, 21, 47; so id. Off. 1, 28, 101; 1, 36, 132; id. Tusc 4, 5, 10; and again of a threefold; as, Plato triplicem finxit animum, cujus principatum, id est rationem in capite sicut in arce posuit, et duas partes (the two other parts) ei parere voluit, iram et cupiditatem, quas locis disclusit; iram in pectore, cupiditatem subter praecordia locavit, i. e. the reason or intellect, and the sensibility here resolved into desire and aversion, id. ib. 1, 10, 20; so id. Ac. 2, 39, 124. The will, βούλησις, voluntas, arbitrium, seems to have been sometimes merged in the sensibility, θυμός, animus, animi, sensus, and sometimes identified with the intellect or reason, νοῦς, λογισμός, mens, ratio).
A. 1.. The general power of perception and thought, the reason, intellect, mind (syn.: mens, ratio, ingenium), νοῦς: “cogito cum meo animo,Plaut. Most. 3, 2, 13; so Ter. Ad. 3, 4, 55: “cum animis vestris cogitare,Cic. Agr. 2, 24: “recordari cum animo,id. Clu. 25, 70; “and without cum: animo meditari,Nep. Ages. 4, 1; cf. id. Ham. 4, 2: “cogitare volvereque animo,Suet.

Rep. 6, 12 al.— “For the sake of rhet. fulness, animus often has a synonym joined with it: Mens et animus et consilium et sententia civitatis posita est in legibus,Cic. Clu. 146: “magnam cui mentem animumque Delius inspirat vates,Verg. A. 6, 11: “complecti animo et cogitatione,Cic. Off. 1, 32, 117; id. de Or. 1, 2, 6: “animis et cogitatione comprehendere,id. Fl. 27, 66: “cum omnia ratione animoque lustraris,id. Off. 1, 17, 56: “animorum ingeniorumque naturale quoddam quasi pabulum consideratio naturae,id. Ac. 2, 41, 127.—Hence the expressions: agitatio animi, attentio, contentio; animi adversio; applicatio animi; judicium, opinio animorum, etc. (v. these vv.); and animum advertere, adjungere, adplicare, adpellere, inducere, etc. (v. these vv.).—

3. Consciousness (physically considered) or the vital power, on which consciousness depends ( = conscientia, q. v. II. A., or anima, q. v. II. E.): “vae miserae mihi. Animo malest: aquam velim,I'm fainting, my wits are going, Plaut. Am. 5, 1, 6; id. Curc. 2, 3, 33: “reliquit animus Sextium gravibus acceptis vulneribus,Caes. B. G. 6, 38: “Unā eademque viā sanguis animusque sequuntur,Verg. A. 10, 487: “animusque reliquit euntem,Ov. M. 10, 459: “nisi si timor abstulit omnem Sensum animumque,id. ib. 14, 177: “linqui deinde animo et submitti genu coepit,Curt. 4, 6, 20: repente animo linqui solebat, Suet. Caes. 45: “ad recreandos defectos animo puleio,Plin. 20, 14, 54, § 152.—
4. The conscience, in mal. part. (v. conscientia, II. B. 2. b.): “cum conscius ipse animus se remordet,Lucr. 4, 1135: “quos conscius animus exagitabat,Sall. C. 14, 3: “suae malae cogitationes conscientiaeque animi terrent,Cic. Sex. Rosc. 67.—
5. In Plaut. very freq., and once also in Cic., meton. for judicium, sententia, opinion, judgment; mostly meo quidem animo or meo animo, according to my mind, in my opinion, Plaut. Men. 1, 3, 17: “e meo quidem animo aliquanto facias rectius, si, etc.,id. Aul. 3, 6, 3: “meo quidem animo, hic tibi hodie evenit bonus,id. Bacch. 1, 1, 69; so id. Aul. 3, 5, 4; id.

Curc. 4, 2, 19: “nisi, ut meus est animus, fieri non posse arbitror,id. Cist. 1, 1, 5 (cf.: “EX MEI ANIMI SENTENTIA,Inscr. Orell. 3665: “ex animi tui sententiā,Cic. Off. 3, 29, 108).—
6. The imagination, the fancy (for which Cic. often uses cogitatio, as Ac. 2, 15, 48): “cerno animo sepultam patriam, miseros atque insepultos acervos civium,Cic. Cat. 4, 6, 11: “fingere animo jubebat aliquem etc.,id. Sen. 12, 41: Fingite animis; “litterae enim sunt cogitationes nostrae, et quae volunt, sic intuentur, ut ea cernimus, quae videmus,id.

A. 2, 73: “Hoc fletu concussi animi,id. ib. 9, 498; “4, 310: animum offendere,Cic. Lig. 4; id. Deiot. 33; so Vulg. Gen. 26, 35.—Mens and animus are often conjoined and contrasted, mind and heart (cf. the Homeric κατὰ φρένα καὶ κατὰ θυμόν, in mind and heart): mentem atque animum delectat suum, entertains his mind and delights his heart, Enn. ap. Gell. 19, 10: “Satin tu sanus mentis aut animi tui?Plaut. Trin. 2, 4, 53: “mala mens, malus animus,bad mind, bad heart, Ter.
