Always through a research made by Colin Peter for the University of Glasgow (¹) we will try to extrapolate a series of concepts, that will serve in our personal research for the reconstruction of Germanic and proto-Germanic thought.
Richard North (1991) claimed that the rests of the conceptual proto-Germanic system can be detected in Old English and in the Old Norwegian-Icelandic, and provide a way to interpret the hints of the mental concepts in these languages.
These additional informations would clearly be of great benefit in the interpretation of the vision of the world of English and Old Norwegian-Icelandic orators.
Eggers states that Mód and Hugi were synonymous, at the moment when the Old Saxon was written. However, he claims that, in the initial development of the language, and for a proto-Germanic extension, Hugi was the main term “mind”, while Mód meaning was “Dämon”. A vision which we relate to. A sort of a first venue for the development of instinctual daemon.
A dualism that is present and also embedded throughout the Germanic myth.
Flowers’s reconstruction is based on an amalgamation of the psychological concepts of the first Germanic.
As mentioned in previous articles, Mód differs from the “mind”.
Vernacular tradition also presents Mód as having “a mind of its own”, often encouraging and exhorting the person to action.
