Thinking of You Between Anima & Spiritus

artbox by marguerita From Soul to Mind

5.1. Meditationes

A notable aspect of the Latin text of the Meditationes in contrast to its accompanying texts-Dedicatory Letter, Praefatio, Synopsis- is the use of vocabulary. Descartes was very deliberate and disciplined in his choice and use of the wide range of Latin words available for naming the non- corporeal aspect of the human being- mens, ingenium, anima, animus, spiritus.
