II The Human Sensorium in Context

  • Jamie C. Kassler
Part of the Archimedes book series (ARIM, volume 53)


In the foregoing part I presented Newton’s texts as they relate to the human, as well as the divine sensorium. The purpose of this and the next section is to discover what can be learned from those about the human sensorium. Although this usage of the term ‘sensorium’ is found most frequently in the texts concerning the visual sensory system, yet I shall begin with Text III, in which there is no mention of a human sensorium. Nevertheless, an analysis of that text, as well as evidence and inferences drawn from it, will help to identify problems that require solution during the course of this inquiry.
