Distinction

Distinction

Distinction, Unterschied, Absonderung, Trennung. Man distinguirt im Urtheile z. B., wenn man zwischen der Meinung (Ansicht) des Einen und der des Anderen einen Mittelweg (Unterschied) einschlägt. In der Conversationssprache bedeutet Distinction so viel als Auszeichnung, und man nennt den einen Menschen von Distinction (distinguirten Menschen), der sich (wohl zu unterscheiden vom Sonderling, s. d. Art.) durch seine Sitten und Formen vor der Menge auszeichnet, vom Gewöhnlichen unterscheidet.
