G5917 - Strong's Greek Lexicon Number


Mind, understanding.
See Definition for nous { [G3563]}
See Definition for dianoia { [G1271]}

nous is distinctly the reflective consciousness, ``the organ of
moral thinking and knowing, the intellectual organ of moral sentiment''

dianoia meant originally activity of thinking, but has borrowed
from nous its common meaning of faculty of thought. It is more
common than nous, and has largely replaced it in its usual meanings.
