Synonyms for approximates:
The language of the memoirs distinctly approximates to the language of the Chronicler himself, though this can be fairly accounted for, either by supposing that the spirit and interests of Ezra the priest were largely identical with those of the Chronicler, or that the Chronicler, recognizing his general affinity with Ezra, hesitated less than in the case of Nehemiah to conform the language of the memoirs to his own.- "Introduction to the Old Testament", John Edgar McFadyen.
Education, considered as a process of forming our mental habits and our outlook on the world, is to be judged successful in proportion as its outcome approximates to this ideal; in proportion, that is to say, as it gives us a true view of our place in society, of the relation of the whole human society to its non- human environment, and of the nature of the non- human world as it is in itself apart from our desires and interests.- "Mysticism and Logic and Other Essays", Bertrand Russell.
