as Lehrmeinung is regarded that, what as current conditions of the sciences, a religion or a world view are regarded. If a Lehrmeinung is regarded as fundamental and not negotiatable, then it develops to the dogma.
the “current conditions of the sciences” is certainly always unsecured generally and is controversially discussed. Therefore Lehrmeinung the dominant Lehrmeinung is usually called, which develops for their part not only by discourse, but pretty often rather by authority, formation of science schools and quotation trusts.
The Lehrmeinung can quite drop back thereby behind knowledge conditions already reached. So e.g. was. the Kugelgestalt of the earth already for Aristoteles common a concept, during Kosmas Indikopleustes it over 800 years after (547) rejected. On the other hand a generally recognized theory can be practically completely ignored like Einstein relativity theory within a science range, because for example in the classical mechanics Newton's physics is sufficient as explanation model completely. And on the other hand the refutation of relativity theory can become the recognized society play - as for instance in the high talented association refectory -, because it is the ambition of many scientists beyond the usual Lehrmeinung.
in catholic theology is a Lehrmeinung the closer interpretation of a dogma by an individual church teacher or a theological school direction, who is not faith obligatory and stands equally beside others. If a Lehrmeinung seems to contain an inadmissible interpretation of a dogma, she can examined by the church teaching profession and if necessary. are rejected. This is however in relation to the abundance of the Lehrmeinungen infinitesimal rare the case.
