Older usage; might insensibly mean inevitibly?
I found the following in the 1759 edition of Adam Smith's Theory of Moral Sentiments (I'll put the quotation in standard Wiktionary format in the event we later decide to use it in the entry):
- 1759 — Adam Smith, Theory of Moral Sentiments, page 159
- Our continual observations upon the conduct of others, insensibly lead us to form to ourselves certain general rules concerning what is fit and proper either to be done or to be avoided. N2e 14:44, 22 April 2008 (UTC)
I'll request a Tea Room discussion to see what others think?
