Product description

1962 Edition (Originally printed 1954), pages intact and clean, some spotting to endpapers, hardcover (blue cloth board) unworn, unmarked. Dust-jacket (paper) faded, marked, slightly torn/curling at edges.

Definition has been a matter of concern to educated westerners ever since the time of socrates and a clear understanding of its uses and abuses is of considerable value to everyone, especially since the result of the demand for definition has sometimes been darkness rather than light, and since there has been a long-continued dispute between those who profess to define things and those who profess to define words.

In this book the author distinguishes and discusses separately the various purposes and methods of definition.
