- What makes a circuit linear?

Many circuit analysis techniques only apply to linear circuits. I don’t quite understand how to distinguish between linear and non-linear circuits.

I understand the mathematical concept of linearity. I understand why components like resistors, capacitors and inductors are linear. I don’t quite understand how linearity applies to entire circuits. Circuits don’t necessarily have singular inputs and outputs.
