Anarchy:
§ While most would conclude that a state of anarchy is a state of political disorder, anarchy in its true meaning is a "theoretical social state in which there is no governing person or body of persons, but each individual has absolute liberty." The OED continues and qualifies that one should not imply that a state of anarchy means a state of disorder. Like a vacuum, I doubt very much if anarchy can, in the natural order of things, exist for long. For an extended discussion, see bluepete's essay "
On Government."
Aesthetics:
§ "Of or pertaining to sensuous perception, received by the senses." Aesthetics attempts to determine the nature of beauty and the criteria of artistic judgment.
Analogical Reasoning:
§ See
Deductive Reasoning.
Art:
§ (See blupete's essay, "On Art.")
Axiom:
§ "A proposition that commends itself to general acceptance; a well-established or universally-conceded principle; a maxim, rule, law." (OED.)
