ΨΥΧΗ ἘΓΡΗΓΟΡΕΟΥΣΑ или ΨΥΧΗ ἘΠΕΞΕΡΠΟΥΣΑ. Что означает «выползающая душа» у псевдо-Гиппократа?

Щербакова Е. А.

This article deals with one of the more difficult passages in the pseudo-hippocratic tract De victu. It is suggested that contrary to what most editors have proposed, the manuscript reading ψυχή...ἐπεξέρπουσα must be at least partially kept. I also offer a new interpretation of the enigmatic phrase ψυχή...διοικέει τὸν ἑωυτῆς οἶκον "the soul manages it's own household", and read the whole passage in the light of the so-called "pneumatic" conception of ψυχή, which the author might have borrowed from Heraclitus and/or Diogenes of Apollonia.
