  Title Can a restrictive definition lead to biases and tautologies? Type Journal Article
  Year 2007 Publication Behavioral and Brain Sciences Abbreviated Journal Behav. Brain Sci.  
  Volume 30 Issue 4 Pages 411-412  
  Abstract We argue that the operational definition proposed by Ramsey et al. does not represent a significant improvement for students of innovation, because it is so restrictive that it might actually prevent the testing of hypotheses on the relationships between innovation, ecology, evolution, culture, and intelligence. To avoid tautological thinking, we need to use an operational definition that is taxonomically unbiased and neutral with respect to the hypotheses to be tested.
