animus

A Quote by Gaston Bachelard on alchemy, alchemist, anima, animus, soul, world, and conviction

Thanks to his complex convictions, made strong with the forces of animus and anima, the alchemist believes he is seizing the soul of the world, participating in the soul of the world. Thus, from the world to the man, alchemy is a problem of souls.
