Tautologies: A Three-Part Trilogy

I. A tautology is a statement that is true regardless of the truth values of its parts.
(ex. All Golden Retrievers are either golden or they are not golden.)

II. A tautology is a redundant expression that is true by its own definition.
(ex. new innovation, significant landmark)

III. A tautology is that which is tautological.
