    I want to know the meaning of this expression.

    "in and of itself". Somebody explain if possible.

    Cb is correct it means , e.g. The necktie was not in or of itself responsible for the strangulation. I think it's what's know as an old English adverb.

    Good explanation.

    It  mean one particular thing without allowing any room or question for something else to be the cause.

    Okay then. I'll use it in a sentence today. :)

    ....the individual words do not contribute to the meaning of the phrase 


    ....it really has no meaning

    So, it's just another "having said that"?
    Or, here's another one. "Be that as it may".

    The question sounds like Alex Trebek asking a question .

    Ducky asked, "What is the meaning of the expression"?
    Your comment belongs in the blue section underneath the question, not here in the answer section.

    It sounds a little bit like AKA.     lol.
