Animism



The belief that plants and other inanimate objects have souls ( derived from the Latin 'animus' meaning 'soul'. ) It is an ancient belief that likely stemmed from the need for a way to determine what is alive and what isn't.

An 'animist' is someone who believes in the doctrine of animism.
