view′a·ble adj.
Synonyms: view, opinion, sentiment, feeling, belief, conviction
These nouns signify something a person believes or accepts as being sound or true. View stresses individuality of outlook: "My view is ... that freedom of speech means that you shall not do something to people either for the views they have or the views they express" (Hugo L. Black).
Opinion is applicable to a judgment based on grounds insufficient to rule out the possibility of dispute: "A little group of willful men, representing no opinion but their own, have rendered the great Government of the United States helpless and contemptible" (Woodrow Wilson).
Sentiment and especially feeling stress the role of emotion as a determinant: "If men are to be precluded from offering their sentiments on a matter which may involve the most serious and alarming consequences ... reason is of no use to us" (George Washington)."There needs protection ... against the tyranny of the prevailing opinion and feeling" (John Stuart Mill).
A belief is something to which one subscribes strongly: "The belief that species were immutable productions was almost unavoidable as long as the history of the world was thought to be of short duration" (Charles Darwin).
Conviction is a belief that excludes doubt: "the editor's own conviction of what, whether interesting or only important, is in the public interest" (Walter Lippmann).
