English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. concept

    Idea is in Greek a form or an image. The word signified in early philosophical use the archetype or primal image which the Platonic philosophy supposed to be the model or pattern that existing objects imperfectly embody. This high sense has nearly disappeared from the word idea, and has been largely appropriated by ideal, tho something of the original meaning still appears when in theological or philosophical language we speak of the ideas of God. The present popular use of idea makes it to signify any product of mental apprehension or activity, considered as an object of knowledge or thought; this coincides with the primitive sense at but a single point — that an idea is mental as opposed to anything substantial or physical; thus, almost any mental product, as a belief, conception, design, opinion, etc., may now be called an idea. Compare FANCY; IDEAL.

    apprehension, archetype, belief, conceit, conception, design, fancy, fantasy, idea, ideal, image, imagination, impression, judgment, model, notion, opinion, pattern, plan, purpose, sentiment, supposition, theory, thought

    Antonyms:
    actuality, fact, reality, substance

How to use concept in a sentence?

  1. Jorge Luis Borges:

    One concept corrupts and confuses the others. I am not speaking of the Evil whose limited sphere is ethics; I am speaking of the infinite.

  2. Ehsan Sehgal:

    The Quran is only such a holy book, which Muslims, whether man, woman, child or elder ones, recite every second and everywhere in this universe by heart, and verbally without reading all its verses. As a fact, Quran executes not only and mainly respect for the entire humanity, it also teaches love, equality, empathy, justice, honesty, harmony, tolerance, forgiveness, and peace. However, it also describes and allows the Tit for Tat, but it defines that forgiveness is a great attitude as well. If one feels a friendly feeling, whether Muslim or non-Muslim; it understands the Quran precisely and accurately; otherwise, the collapse of mutual respect becomes inevitable. Indeed, wrong conduct and interpretation penetrate one's thought, mindset, and character, not the essence of words and the meaning of the Quran in its right and correct context and concept.

  3. Meng Qingfeng:

    We must have a long-term battle concept that does not slacken and is persistent.

  4. Bioethicist Art Caplan:

    This doesn't sit well with me. It makes me nervous, i think a 4-year-old might be capable of deciding what music to hear or what picture book they might want to read. But I think there's zero chance a 4-year-old can understand the concept of death. That kind of thinking doesn't really develop until around age 9 or 10.

  5. Ehsan Sehgal:

    The sin exhibits the believing in religion and religion in a context and concept of spirituality, requires not the evidence; however, devotion only, which prevails science and all materialistic subjects and objects. As a fact, believing is itself evidence, in multiple ways.
