Sense and Sensibilia (Aristotle)

Sense and Sensibilia (or On Sense and the Sensible, On Sense and What is Sensed, On Sense Perception; Ancient Greek: Περὶ αἰσθήσεως καὶ αἰσθητῶν, Latin: De sensu et sensibilibus, De sensu et sensili, De sensu et sensato) is one of the short treatises by Aristotle that make up the Parva Naturalia.

The phrase was alluded to by Jane Austen in her novel Sense and Sensibility, and by J. L. Austin in his own Sense and Sensibilia.[citation needed]
