I was expecting a clarification.
Oh. I know that. And once I can think of something that will satiate your hunger, I will gladly give it to you. It's just not at the tip of my tongue or top of my head at the moment. So in the meantime I took the liberty to have fund based on the title of this thread, and knowing you're a good sport.

Would "guiding philosophy" be more accurate?

Not sure I'm comfortable with any noun that ends with a "y" though not fully excluding them.

The Hebrew root ש.ק.ף. definitely has a meaning of view/outlook/paradigm etc.

This seems really strange to me. Is there a hetter for a frum company to invoke the name of a saint?

CanAm I allowed to visit the Sistine chapel?
FTFY

Why not ask a Halachic authority you trust, rather than here?

Because many do not have a convenient opportunity to ask a LOR, who often has as busy a schedule as we do, leaving little or no mutually convenient time. So we bounce it off our friends, google it or ask on our chat groups. Usually not really looking for a definitive psak Halacha.

Halacha is where we don't argue that much and we accept other's opinions. Hashkafah is weltanschauung, there we have very different opinions and most claim that he got it right and everyone else is just totally confused and wrong.

If the Shevet HaLevi has a more machmir psak than someone else that I follow, I can respectfully note or study his psak and still follow the more lenient psak. Likewise, if someone follows the Shevet HaLevi's psak it doesn't bother me at all, he has a valid opinion. You can substitute the name with any other halachic authority.

Would Hashkofa be more of a worldwide view? It changes over time?
This might help a little bit.

That is how it should be but unfortunately you speak only for yourself.
