Freebase

  1. Permission

    Permission, in philosophy, is the attribute of a person whose performance of a specific action, otherwise ethically wrong or dubious, would thereby involve no ethical fault. The term "permission" is more commonly used to refer to consent. Consent is the legal embodiment of the concept, in which approval is given to another party. Permissions depend on norms or institutions. Many permissions and obligations are complementary to each other, and deontic logic is a tool sometimes used in reasoning about such relationships.

Examples of permission in a Sentence

    There's no sponsorship. We never reached out to them for permission or anything like that, we vetted it all legally and stuff and the opinion was that because everyone uses it so much, it's fair game. As long as you're not derogatory about it and as long as you use it as it's used in real life and you're not making stuff up about how it's used, you're free to go. And it's a better title than 'Stiffed'.
