I was reading a blog about what abstract ideas are. In one part of the blog, it mentions:
Another way to think of abstract thinking is to look at broad concepts that may have different meanings to different people.
Most concepts such as compassion, honor, and peace are abstract not only because they lack physical forms but because their definitions can differ from person to person without being wrong.
Imagine that there are ten people sitting in a room together. Each person is asked to define what the term peace means.
While there may be similarities in their answers (“no wars”, “an absence of fighting and conflict”, “quiet and serenity”) there is no one single answer that is more correct than the others.
I had understood that an abstract concept is just something that does not have a physical component, but in this blog it says that it also can be an abstract concept if it has different definitions, is this true?
