Philosophy Wire: Stupid definitions, vipers and dummies

_57798158_57798154_thumb[1]Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2012-01-10]: New viper species were discovered [source: BBC News]. Great! This proves that… Wait a minute! How can new species of a… species be “discovered”?!? How can new vipers of the “viper species” be discovered? Definition is fundamental for philosophy. And when we define something so loosely, then it is just logical that we reach so absurd conclusions!
