  Principle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A principle (not principal) is something, usually a rule or norm, that is part of the basis for something else.
For example, the ethics of someone may be seen as a set of principles that the individual obeys.
Principles may also be introduced as pedagogy: laying down basics in a topic, in order later to proceed to more detailed developments.

 Jewish principles of faith - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
These principles were put forth as fundamental underpinnings inherent in the acceptance and practice of Judaism.
This principle is also rejected by most Reconstructionist Jews, but for a different reason; most posit that God is not a being with a will; thus they maintain that no will can be revealed.

 The Principles of Agile Modeling (AM)
For the most part the principles are presented with a focus on their implications to modeling efforts and as a result material adopted from XP may be presented in a different light.
The AM principles are organized into two lists, core principles which you must adopt to be able to claim that you're truly taking an Agile Model Driven Development (AMDD) approach and supplementary principles which you should consider tailoring into your software process to meet the exact needs of your environment.
This principle also applies to a change to an existing model: if you are making a change, perhaps applying a known pattern, then you should have a valid reason to make that change (perhaps to support a new requirement or to refactor your work to something cleaner).

 Principles of Systems and Cybernetics
Principles or laws play the role of expressing the most basic ideas in a science, establishing a framework or methodology for problem-solving.
Unfortunately, the few generally used principles of the domain, such as the law of requisite variety, or the principle that the whole is more than the sum of its parts, are typically ambiguous or controversial, and lack coherence with each other.
The preliminary set of principles we propose are based on and expressed in terms of a set of primitive concepts of systems and cybernetics.

 -- Axioms of Web architecture
Principles such as simplicity and modularity are the stuff of software engineering; decentralization and tolerance are the life and breath of Internet.
This is the expression of a principle which applies pretty well in life, (it is a typical UU tenet), and is commonly employed in design across the Internet.
