A doubt is a indeterminacy between two decisions or two judgments . It is a hesitation that can be experienced before a fact, a news or a belief. For example: “The official version of this story creates a great doubt for me”, "Professor, I have a question about the topic you just explained", "There is no doubt: it is a great player who will benefit the team".

In the field of Law there is also another verbal phrase that uses the term we are addressing now. We are referring to the expression “the benefit of the doubt”, which comes to refer to that acquittal of a defendant that a judge carries out for considering that there is no substantiated evidence that has been able to prove its guilt.

Doubt supposes a state of uncertainty : where there are doubts there are no certainties. Yes one person doubt about something, not sure of the validity of that issue. Doubt is a limit to the trust since, where there are doubts, there is no belief in the truth of a knowledge .

Doubt can affect a belief or thought or project into action. A man He can doubt his wife's fidelity and continue acting without change, or he can transform that doubt into a decision and raise the problem for the woman.

In other cases, the doubt may imply a suspension of the decision: "I planned to invest my savings in a field but now I have a doubt: will it be a good decision in this economic context?"

The philosophers emphasize that, when a doubt is accepted as ignorance (the subject doubts because he does not know or, at least, lacks certainty), it can become a source of knowledge as it drives reflection, study and research.

Starting from all that we have analyzed so far, we have to make clear that there is what is known as philosophical doubt. It is a term that is used to be able to define that period in which a person, in an absolutely voluntary way, decides to suspend the trial with the clear objective that it can itself carry out a process of coordination of both knowledge which he has as one of his ideas regarding a specific topic.

On the other hand, we cannot ignore the fact that it is also customary for us to speak within the philosophical field of what is known as unleashing doubt. Specifically with this verbal phrase what tries to express itself is that someone is solving a specific issue.

Rene Descartes used to be called as the philosopher of doubt since he refused to accept everything that could be doubted from a rational point of view.

In addition to all of the above, we cannot ignore that there is an important footballer who is known as Duda. We are referring to the Portuguese Sergio Paulo Barbosa Valente, who usually plays in the far left position and has passed through various European clubs such as Vitoria de Guimaraes, Cádiz, Sevilla and Málaga.
