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 The mind is abstracted when it is withdrawn from all other subjects and concentrated upon one, diverted when it is drawn away from what it would or should attend to by some other interest, distracted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

    You accuse me of incitement, let me meet, look in the face of someone I have incited, that way I know what he has done at my instigation. The crime is incitement in the abstract, it corresponds to nothing.

  2. Mehmet Murat ildan:

    Let your works not be interrupted by the stupidities happening in your own country! Work and walk on your true path ignoring any kind of distractions! Abstract yourself from all the primitivenesses surrounding you! Concentrate on your work!

  3. Epicurus:

    There is no such thing as justice in the abstract; it is merely a compact between men

  4. 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.

  5. Logan Van Liempt:

    People live in a purely carnal physicality and therefore are unable to grasp abstract thought. Physical evidence of a non-physical force is impossible, and without objective philosophical truths, life is utterly meaningless. Due to these intellectual inabilities, rather than individuals using their collective will to seek absolute truth, they choose to be dependent on the materialistic world; rendering them trapped inside a state of existential-crisis.
