Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. A circular reference is a series of references where the last object references the first, resulting in a closed loop. A circular reference is not to be confused with the logical fallacy of a circular argument. Although a circular reference will often be unhelpful and reveal no information, such as two entries in a book index referring to each other, it is not necessarily so that a circular reference is of no use. Dictionaries, for instance, must always ultimately be a circular reference since all words in a dictionary are defined in terms of other words, but a dictionary nevertheless remains a useful reference.show more
