Origin of the word ‘Psychology’

Psychology (n.) 1650s, “study of the soul,” from Modern Latin psychologia. Appears the soul has been omitted from their understanding! I am certain the soul exists but despite the origin of Psychology you wouldn’t dare hear a Psychologist mention the soul would you?
