conscious (adj.)

17世纪 ,"知晓,了解"(诗意),来自拉丁文 conscius "了解,意识到",来自 conscire "要(相互)意识到",来自 com "与"或"彻底"(见 con- )+ scire "了解"(见 science )的同化形式。这个拉丁文词可能是希腊文 syneidos 的借译。

"自己内心的认识或感知,内心的感性,意识到"的意义是1630年代的,可能是 conscious to oneself (1620年代)的缩写。另外比较拉丁语意义的演变,在 conscience 。从1650年代起为"意识到(某事实)"。"积极而清醒,赋有积极的精神能力"的意义来自1837年。相关内容: Consciously .
