Regress, philosophy of science: also infinite regress. This is an expression for the problem that, in the case of certain formulations of definitions or problem solving, elements are used which were already used for the questions and which are actually to be examined first. Formally, regress is the insertion of expressions in repetitive linguistic or logical forms, which in turn lead to repetitions. See also circularity, definition, definability, theories.
