The Version Debate (Part 2)

In this episode Dr.’s Van Kleeck continue their treatment of the nature and scope of the version debate and particularly the terms used in that debate. Regarding the definition of terms, renowned logician, Peter Kreeft, observes,

“Definition is crucial to logic. For a definition tells us what a thing is; and if we do not know what a thing is, by the first act of the mind, we cannot know what to predicate of it in the second act of the mind, and thus we have no premises for our reasoning (the third act of the mind).”

Peter Kreeft, Socratic Logic, (South Bend, IN: St. Augustin Press, 2008), 123.
