Selected contents from this journal

The purpose of this paper is to precisify and compare three relationships between definition and argumentation: argumentation about definition, argumentation from definition and argumentation by definition. Some modification of the standard understanding of these relationships is suggested. Additionally, it is argued that although real definitions are fallible and subject to revision and change, this does not imply that they have to be persuasive, manipulative definitions.
