Caveat : The meaning of words (or any communications) are a central theme
this glossary could be clear and unambiguous, it would not need to exist.
"It often does more harm than good to force definitions on things
we don't understand. Only in logic and mathematics do
definitions ever capture concepts perfectly. The things we deal with in
practical life are usually too complicated to be represented by neat,
compact expressions. Especially when it comes to understanding minds, we
still know so little that we can't be sure our ideas about psychology
are even aimed in the right directions. One must not
mistake defining things for knowing what they are."
