Missing definition[edit]

It is not a good idea to to use the word that is being defined in its own definition. This article is a good example of a definition that does just that, and leaves the uninitiated no wiser. It would certainly be very nice if someone who does understand this issue to explain it in concrete terms. Thanks. FreeFlow99 (talk) 15:36, 31 March 2013 (UTC)

I agree with FreeFlow99: and above all it lacks any hint in what a product type is different from a trivial tuple. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:03, 20 June 2013 (UTC)
Agreed. The industrious individual could do no harm by adding content taken from either the ncatlab page, or from the HoTT book. Both have a decent explanation of the idea. (talk) 18:15, 26 June 2013 (UTC)
