I The Sensorium in Newton’s Texts
The following twelve texts either mention, or provide a context for Newton’s use of the term ‘sensorium’ in relation to humans as well as to God. Boldface is used as a means of drawing attention not only to the term, but also to other words and phrases that are important for the interpretations made during this inquiry. The texts themselves are set out in chronological order. Each text is numbered to facilitate cross reference, after which its bibliographical source is identified. When required, comment takes the form either of footnotes or remarks at the conclusion of a text. Both kinds of comment, though in different ways, concern textual matters, including meaning of terms, some of which are now rare or obsolete but which were current in Newton’s day. The chief source for the latter kind of comment is the multi-volumed Oxford English Dictionary, hereafter cited as OED.
