Well, you don't have to be Socrates to know that there is significant value in defining terms in any discussion. Among other things it helps to make clear exactly what is being discussed so that one is not talking at cross purposes.

It's a postmodern sign (signifier?) of the times that almost any meaningful discussion can easily degenerate into an unfruitful and unsatisfying splitting of hairs over defintion.
