Principles of the Irminenschaft
What IS a "principle" and why are they important to Irminen? According to the Webster's New World Dictionary of the American Language a principle is a fundamental truth, law, doctrine, or motivating force upon which others are based. Principles are overwhelming obvious ideas that are often accepted as a matter of faith. A principle is also considered an essential element or constituent of a process. Thus, principles of a process are key characteristics that separate the process from other approaches.
