Here is a sentence from an English text:
“All men, the monster and the lusus naturae excepted, have a certain form, a certain complement of limbs, a certain internal structure, and organs of sense--may we not add further, certain powers of intellect?”
Would you be kind enough to tell me the difference between the terms in bold?
In my opinion they are identical.
monster = lusus naturae = freak of nature
Thank you for your efforts.
