As a physical entity thumos is most probably to be regarded as the air in the lungs (Clarke  75); that this physical entity can also function as an emotional force is thus an example of one of the most fundamental of all emotion’s conceptual metaphors, the “container” metaphor (Lakoff and K¨ovecses  197–8; K¨ovecses  37).
