The idea is to propose scientific definitions for ?CERAMICS?, to discuss them and then to evaluate them in order to obtain an appropriate and complete definition.
Here are two propositions:
1. Merriam-Webster Dictionary: An artifact made of hard brittle material produced from nonmetallic minerals by firing at high temperatures.
2. Institute "Pre ASTM, 63, 309, 1963": "Ceramic" is a general meaning, expanded to Art and Technique of preparation of objects with ceramic method or the objects made by this method!!!
I will be glad to see your opinion about this subject
