Abstract

Building on a previous work (i) developing the model of method according to which method can be construed as a series of instructions and (ii) providing a specific classification of definitions, the present paper deals with the method of defining (or, rather, the methods of defining). The method of defining is presented here as a recipe for obtaining definitions. More precisely, various methods of defining (corresponding to the classification of definitions) are distinguished and a specific series of instructions is suggested for each of them.
