Gravity; and Gravity, of Humour. Fora Subject, which would not bear Raillery, was suspicious; and a Jest, which would not bear a serious Examination, was certainly false Wit. His Lordships Remark Jupon the true Meaning of Sensus Communis, in jfuvenal and Horace, is very curious and just. The Roman Satirist, lays he, may be thought more than ordinarily satirical, when, speaking of the Nobility and Court, he is so far from allowing them to be the Standard of Politeness and good Sense, that he makes them in a manner the Reverse: Rarus enim ferme Sensus Communis in ilia Fortuna----Juv. Sat. VIII. v. 73. Some of the most ingenious Commentators, however, interpret this very differently from what is generally apprehended. They make this Common Sense of the Poet, by a Greek Derivation, to signify Sense of publick Weal, and of the common Interest. Love of the Community or Society, natural Affection, Humanity, Obligingness, or that Sort of Civility, which rises from a just Sense of the Common Rights of Mankind, and the Natural Equality there is among those of the fame Species. And uideed, if we consider the Thing nicely, it must ieeni somewhat hard in the Poet, to have denied Wit or Ability to a Court, such as that of Rome, even under a Tiberius or a Nero. But for Humanity, or Sense of f-f I publick piiblick Good, and the common Interest of Mankind, twas no such deep Satire to question, whether this was properly the Spirit of a Court. Twas difficult to apprehend what Community subsisted among Courtiers; or what publick Good between an absolute Prince and his Slave-Subjects. And for real Society, there could be none, between such as had no other Sense than that of private Good. , . . -! Our Poet therefore. . . This item ships from multiple locations.
