English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. abstract(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 The mind is abstracted when it is withdrawn from all other subjects and concentrated upon one, diverted when it is drawn away from what it would or should attend to by some other interest, distracted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.

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

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

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

How to use abstract in a sentence?

  1. Tom Naylor:

    The bigger the real-life problems, the greater the tendency for the discipline to retreat into a reassuring fantasy-land of abstract theory and technical manipulation.

  2. Leland Stowe:

    An American will tinker with anything he can put his hands on. But how rarely can he be persuaded to tinker with an abstract idea.

  3. William Barr:

    In any age, the so-called progressives treat politics as their religion. Their holy mission is to use the coercive power of the State to remake man and society in their own image, according to an abstract ideal of perfection. Whatever means they use are therefore justified because, by definition, they are a virtuous people pursing a deific end. They are willing to use any means necessary to gain momentary advantage in achieving their end, regardless of collateral consequences and the systemic implications. They never ask whether the actions they take could be justified as a general rule of conduct, equally applicable to all sides.

  4. Feodor Mikhailovich Dostoyevsky:

    Man has such a predilection for systems and abstract deductions that he is ready to distort the truth intentionally, he is ready to deny the evidence of his senses only to justify his logic.

  5. Ehsan Sehgal:

    All organs of one's body, if becoming ill, mostly that neither abstract nor accept the medicinal chemicals; consequently, such a patient faces grave mental conflict and severe health damage from that. Factually, natural herbs can be significantly best and effective for all diseases, in all dimensions and stages if one carries out that accurately.
