    Hello all. I'm currently putting together a book called Encyclopedia of Abstract Terms. I was wondering if you could provide me with abstract words from philosophy that you believe need (better) definition.

    Hmmm... would "miracle" count? If someone could explain what one is then it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks so much everyone! I've defined them all in less than three words. Please provide me with more.

    This link was actually quite helpful. Thanks. I'm in the process of writing a philosophy book while attending college and doing brain tumor research. A PhD from the Harvard lab I was working in said it was "genius." Hopefully I'll be able to publish within the next two years. Wish me luck!
