Definition

When sub­stan­tial con­tro­versy ex­ists about how to define a term, good epistemic policy is for both sides to adopt new, more spe­cific terms whose defi­ni­tions are not fur­ther dis­puted. To what­ever ex­tent pos­si­ble, defi­ni­tions should not be phrased in a way that tries to pre-emp­tively set­tle an ar­gu­ment or ‘bake in’ one an­swer to a fac­tual or policy dis­agree­ment. See A Hu­man’s Guide to Words.
