may be drawn from definition, sometimes called
and sometimes finis.
Definition is of two
kinds. We may ask whether a particular quality is a
virtue or make a definition precede and ask what is
the nature of a virtue. Such a definition is either
stated in general terms, such as Rhetoric is the science
of speaking well,
or in detail, such as Rhetoric is the
science of correct conception, arrangement and utterance,
coupled with a retentive memory and a dignified delivery.
