When contemporary sciences and humanities use the term emotion while discussing human mental-sentient dynamics, they usually don’t question its supposed status of a conceptual universal. Yet, despite its frequent usage, the term is surprisingly ambiguous, and its universality status is highly dubious. E. g. it shows not to be particularly adequate for the analysis of the Croatian Church Slavonic (acr. CCS) lexis expressing phenomena of the human mental-sentient dynamics. Instead, that lexis seems to be in concordance with the concepts pertaining to the medieval paradigm relying on the Latin terms passio (Eng. equivalent: passion) and affectus (Eng. equivalent affect) which is best articulated by Thomas Aquinas (Summa theologiae 1a.2ae.22-48) and unfortunately almost forgotten or unwarrantably mixed with the paradigm of emotions. The third option in conceptualizing human mental-sentient dynamics (besides those relying on emotions on one side, and passions and affect on the other) argues that the concept FEEL is more convincing universal candidate. Namely, the researchers of the Natural Semantic Metalanguage (acr. NSM) hypothesis present substantial theoretical evidences and ample amount of corroborating data from typologically different languages of the world in defense of such a proposal. This paper benefits from this finding as FEEL, and NSM in general, proved to be an adequate tool for delineating similarities and differences between concepts of ‘emotion’, Lat. ‘passio’ and Lat. ‘affectus’.
