English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. withdraw(v)

    The central idea of withdrawing makes abstract in common speech a euphemism for appropriate (unlawfully), purloin, steal. In mental processes we discriminate between objects by distinguishing their differences; we separate some one element from all that does not necessarily belong to it, abstract it, and view it alone. We may separate two ideas, and hold both in mind in comparison or contrast; but when we abstract one of them, we drop the other out of thought. The mind is abstracted when it is withdrawn from all other subjects and concentrated upon one, diverted when it is drawn away from what it would or should attend to by some other interest, distracted when the attention is divided among different subjects, so that it can not be given properly to any. The trouble with the distracted person is that he is not abstracted. Compare DISCERN.

    Antonyms:
    add, combine, complete, conjoin, fill up, increase, restore, strengthen, unite

    Synonyms:
    abstract, appropriate, detach, discriminate, distinguish, distract, divert, eliminate, purloin, remove, separate, steal, take away

    Preposition:
    The purse may be abstracted from the pocket; the substance from the accidents; a book into a compend.
