    What is a doctrine?

    Answer:

    Doctrine

    1.A principle or body of principles presented for acceptance or belief, as by a religious, political, scientific, or philosophic group; dogma.

    2.A rule or principle of law, especially when established by precedent.

    3.A statement of official government policy, especially in foreign affairs and military strategy.

    4.Archaic. Something taught; a teaching.

    [Middle English, from Old French, from Latin doctrīna, from doctor, teacher]
    SYNONYMS doctrine, dogma, tenet. These nouns denote a principle taught, advanced, or accepted, as by a group of philosophers: the legal doctrine of due process; church dogma; experimentation, one of the tenets of the physical sciences.



    Legal doctrine is the currency of the law. In many respects, doctrine,
    or precedent, is the law, at least as it comes from courts. Judicial opinions
    create the rules or standards that comprise legal doctrine.

    Legal doctrine sets the terms for future resolution of cases in an area.
    Doctrine may take many forms; it may be fact-dependent, and therefore
    limited, or sweeping in its breadth.

    One doctrinal distinction commonly discussed in the law is the distinction between “rules” and “standards.”

    Rules are strict requirements that define the answer to a dispute, once the
    predicate facts are established. A rule is something like “any subsequent
    and unauthorized use of another’s mark constitutes trademark infringement.”

    Standards, by contrast, are more amorphous guides to resolving disputes,
    often listing a set of factors to be considered and balanced.

    It occurs to me that there is only a one letter difference between 'Hinds' and 'Hindu.' Coincidence?

    My ancestors came from Britian and Hinds is plural of "hind" meaning a skilled farmer. It also refers to the female red deer. The coat of arms of the Hinds family has three of these female deer on it.

    Yes, and the hind legs.
    Hindi is also the language of India or Hind.

    But my name is not derived from those meanings. 😏

    HaleluYah !!! Praise the Lord! Holy! Holy! Holy!

    P.S. Even though you may think I am an arse-end.
