    by this view

    Dear Friends,

    I only need a confirmation:

    by this view means according to this view

    Am I right?

    Thank you.

    Re: by this view

    I would write "under this view," which is the same as "according to this view."

    I'm not a teacher.

    Re: by this view

    How about 'by this view'? Is it a rare/ungrammatical use of language?

    Do you have any context?

    Re: by this view

    I think "by this view" is also correct; it just sounds odd to me. I've read "by this theory" in one of my law books, so "by this view" should also be correct.

    Re: by this view

    I've read it in an academic paper. In what context would you use it as a synonym for 'according to this view'? Or is it better/safer not to use it in any context?
