McGee, Brian R.
Argumentation and Advocacy, v35 n4 p141-58 Spr 1999
Examines the ways in which the argument from definition functions. Considers two novels published in 1912 that illustrate the argument from definition in descriptions of race during the Progressive Era. Asserts that all definitions should be regarded as contingent, and that the argument from definition poses specific ethical concerns that require careful consideration. (SC)
