(logic, mathematics, proof theory) A fundamental assumption that serves as a basis for deduction of theorems (for example, “Through a pair of distinct points there passes exactly one straight line”, and “All right angles are congruent”); a postulate.
An established principle in some artistic practice or science that is universally received.”
