Figures are
1. Irregular
2. Regular

Question 1. How many and what are the sorts of figures
that require in the first place to be distinguished from each other?

Answer. Two: namely the irregular and the regular and the
irregular: namely those which respectively are so in the posological sense

2
Irregular shapes:
human bodies in
particular

Question 2. What examples have we of irregular figures?
of bodies of an irregular figure?

Ans. Almost all the bodies which we either see or feel:
our own bodies, our very selves, in particular.

3
Regular very few
These are the product
either of
1. Nature: or
2. Human art

Question 3. What examples have we of regular figures? of
bodies of a regular figure?

such as those to which, for some purpose or other, we make
somewhere or ourselves give that same regularity of figure.

Figures produced to

Question 4. What examples can you most readily produce of those regularly
figured bodies to which we make ourselves? and for our own
use?

Ans. A board, of which with wood in other shapes we
make a table: a die, to play at backgammon at
will, with the addition of another such die: a marble, such
as at boys play with when they shoot it forward with by thumb
and fingers, or put it in a ring with other such marbles.

5
Of irregular figures,
the mode of explanation
is by their relation
to regular
ones

Question 6 How By what means are irregular figures explained, and
their several natures and marks of distinction from each other
made apparent?

regular figure or figures.
