Abstract

The author analyses the treatise Praktikos of Evagrios Pontikos from the  point of view of the history of psychology. The treatise is dated back to the 4th century. In Praktikos we can find a categorization of undesirable thoughts and elements of experimental approach in order to control mental processes. The context of the origin of the categorization shows that Evagrios systemized previous classifications of the objectionable thoughts that had existed in the early monastic community before he had joined it.
