Definitions in Political Economy

T. R. Malthus

Excerpt from Definitions in Political Economy: Preceded by an Inquiry Into the Rules Which Ought to Guide Political Economists in the Definition and Use of Their Terms; With Remarks on the Deviation From These Rules in Their Writings

IN a mathematical definition, although the words in which it is expressed may vary, the meaning which it is intended to convey is always the same. Whether a straight line be defined to be a line which lies evenly between its extreme points, or the shortest line which can be drawn between two points, there never can be a difference of opinion as to the lines which are comprehended, and those which are not comprehended, in the definition.
