[8] Though I hardly like to differ from Cicero,1 who follows many authorities in saying that definition is concerned with identity and difference (since he who denies the applicability of one term must always produce another term which he regards as preferable), for my own part I consider that definition falls into three types, which I may perhaps call species.

1 cp. III. vi. 31.
