Compare French impartibilité.

Examples

  • As partibility goes with body, so impartibility with the bodiless: what partition is possible where there is no magnitude?

    The Six Enneads.

  • The Unity was never in any other and never belonged to the partible: nor is its impartibility that of extreme minuteness; on the contrary it is great beyond anything, great not in extension but in power, sizeless by its very greatness as even its immediate sequents are impartible not in mass but in might.

    The Six Enneads.

  • But superior to these is the impartibility of the Deity — Cause of all — from the fact that there is no contact with it.

    Dionysius the Areopagite, Works (1897)
