Defining Terms – Introduction

May 26, 2011

One of the reasons I felt compelled to start blogging about CAM, pseudoscience, and quackery is the feeling I often get when these issues come up in discussion with others that one of the biggest boundaries I am up against is differences in word useage and definitions of terms. Sometimes I find even when discussing these issues with fellow science students who understand the science we have a hard time communicating due to differences in how terms are used that become roadblocks. It is for this reason that I intend to start a series of posts which which will also be compiled on a page that will serve as a dictionary of sorts for this blog called Defining Terms.

It is my intention that these posts will include links to blogs and/or other internet sources that define the term (why reinvent the wheel?) and in some cases these posts will include further pontification from the Science-Based Undergraduate on the meaning of the term, and issues around differing definitions and differing uses of the term.

A topical index / dictionary will be posted on the Defining Terms page.
