Note on definition

Science is a certain interior discourse, beginning with something within us that is known in itself. The perfection of what is known in itself is given by definition, or the knowledge of what is is to be the thing defined. This definition states what is first in the being of the thing- and this can only be said, not symbolized or stated in merely operational terms. Definitions are not true or false, only true or unknown. Definitions can never be replaced by an enumeration of examples.
