zoon   = animal  

The last phase of the Soul  , the Unreasoning-Soul, is the Principle of Animal-Life: it constitutes, in conjunction with the body, the Animal as distinct from the Man; here for reasons of emotional connotation or clearness this phase of the soul conjoined with the body has been said to produce not ’The Animal’ but ’The Animate’ or ’The Animate-Entity’. This conjunction is also called by Plotinus   the ’Two-together’, usually translated here as the Couplement. (Stephen MacKenna  )
