Based on your explanation, I have come up with a few example sentences that I have tried to understand. Please tell me if I understand it right or not.
- The United States is not a direct democracy, in the sense of a country in which laws (and other government decisions) are made predominantly by majority vote.
Here does it mean US is not a direct democracy in the manner of way a country X is? I mean for example like Switzerland. So does it mean to say US is not a democracy in the manner that Switzerland is?
- Germany was not a democracy in the British sense.
Germany is not a democracy in the way Britain is? Right?
- As Jean-Jacques Rousseau highlighted in The Social Contract, democracy in its political sense can only be efficient when the general will of the people is the same as each and every individual will.
Does it mean democracy as understood politically or democracy in a political manner? Also, what would democracy in a constitutional sense mean?
- Time in a philosophical sense and time in a scientific sense.
Does it mean time as understood by philosophers or on the basis of philosophical writings? and time as understood by scientists or on the basis of scientific writings? Am I right?
- When we say love in a religious sense and love in a modern sense.
Does it mean love as prescribed by religion and love as practiced in modern times?
Please help me with the above sentences.
