    Sense Organs and the Activity of Sensation in Aristotle.Joseph Magee - 2000 - Phronesis 45 (4):306 - 330.
    Amid the ongoing debate over the proper interpretation of Aristotle's theory of sense perception in the "De Anima," Steven Everson has recently presented a well-documented and ambitious treatment of the issue, arguing in favor of Richard Sorabji's controversial position that sense organs literally take on the qualities of their proper objects.
