It's annoying when people try to define abstract, subjective ideas, like art and love, amirite?

Yeah, exactly. Just because it's a subjective idea doesn't mean people shouldn't define it - simply that all the definitions will be different.

@Hullabaloo A definition is, by definition, definite. It cannot alternate.

Good point. But everyone has different ideas on what love etc is. And so everyone will define it differently. And since almost everyone thinks their views on something is the definition of it, where does that leave us?

@dini190 Good point. But everyone has different ideas on what love etc is. And so everyone will define it differently. And...

It leaves us with people trying to accomplish something which has been the subject of many philosophers' nightmares -- existential thoughts that go nowhere. Thus, there is no point in trying to define something that is made up by your mind.

I completely know where you're coming from. I think it's good to think about those things from time to time but if it's interferring with your real life then there's clearly a problem.

Do you have a problem with the dictionary definition of art or love?
