    HOW TO DERIVE A GOOD CONCLUSION

    ‘All cats are black, so this cat is black’ represents an inference, though ‘inference’ can refer to the conclusion, ‘This cat is black’, as well as to the process. If all cats are black then this cat is black’, where neither antecedent nor consequent is actually asserted, represents an implication. We make inference when we move from facts to conclusions.

    WHAT ARE ACTIONS?

    What an agent does, as supposed to what happens to an agent (or even what happens inside an agent’s head). Describing events that happens does not of itself permit us to talk of rationality and intention, which are the categories we may apply if we conceive of them as actions. We think of ourselves not only passively, as creatures within which things happens but actively, as creatures that make things happen. Understanding the distinction gives rise to major problems concerning the nature of agency of the causation of bodily events by mental events, and of understanding the will and freewill. Acting usually involves moving in some way or at least…

    THE NATURE OF DEFINITIONS

    A definition calls attention to the fact that the (complex) concept expressed by the definiens plays an important role in the discourse in which the definendum is used. For instance, agreeing to mean by ‘prime’ a number that can be divided without remainder only by 1 and itself attention to the important of this notion for number theory. Hence the collection of definitions embodies our choice of subjects and our judgement as to what is most important. A definition may sometimes supply an analysis of an already existing concept that had not previously been made precise. In this case, the newly introduced concepts shares most or all of the traits…
