Accept the definition of definition as a statement of the meaning of a term.
Despite the practice of both using the concept of definition in theoretical scientonomy and having it built into the backbone of the Encyclopedia of Scientonomy (see the categories of Definitional Topic and Definition), we currently lack a definition for the term. The purpose of this modification is to suggest a somewhat simplistic "textbook" definition with the hope that it will become our starting point for potentially more refined definitions of the term.
Theories To Accept
- Definition (Barseghyan-2018): A statement of the meaning of a term.
This modification attempts to answer the following question(s):
- Definition: What is definition? How should it be defined?
The modification is currently being evaluated; a verdict is pending.
