A [[Concept]] is an abstract idea ("an abstract or generic idea generalized from particular instances" - [http://m-w.com/cgi-bin/dictionary?book=Dictionary&va=concept&x=0&y=0 m-w.com]). Concept pages should be created within Issuepedia when the subject matter is:
# important in order to understand reasoned arguments on particular subjects addressed within Issuepedia, and
# not clearly addressed elsewhere (often there is a good explanation of a particular concept on another web site, but it is buried within a longer explanation about something related)
Concept pages should also be created when a particular concept becomes important in several discussions and it becomes useful to have
# a collection point for related information, or
# an internal link, which can be depended on to exist, instead of continuing to rely on an external page
[[{{PAGENAME}}]] writings are one of the main [[Issuepedia:About|Issuepedia]] [[Article Types]], and their existence as a reference is part of Issuepedia's [[Issuepedia:analytical toolkit|analytical toolkit]].
