Glossary of Objectivist Definitions
“The purpose of a definition is to distinguish a concept from all other concepts and thus to keep its units differentiated from all other existents. . . . It enables man, not only to identify and retain a concept, but also to establish the relationships, the hierarchy, the integration of all his concepts and thus the integration of his knowledge.” – Ayn Rand
