Definition and Determination : 17

Re: Ontolog Forum Discussion • Richard McCullough RM:  We clearly have some differences in the “definition” of “definition”. I suppose it all depends on the sorts of things one wants to define, something we might call the context of application.  … Continue reading

Definition and Determination : 16

Re: Ontolog Forum Discussion • Richard McCullough RM:  What is your view of definitions? A recurring question, always worth some thought, so I added my earlier comment to a long-running series on my blog concerned with Definition and Determination. Definition and … Continue reading

Definition and Determination : 15

Re: Ontolog Forum Discussion In some early math course I learned a fourfold scheme of Primitives (undefined terms), Definitions, Axioms, and Inference Rules.  But later excursions tended to run the axioms and definitions together, speaking for example of mathematical objects … Continue reading
