    meaning versus

    Hi, I need the meaning of the word 'versus'.
    common knowledge is: two people/teams compete against each other in a game or fight

    are there any other meanings? maybe more in the direction depended on each other.

    I'm going to write a paper with the topic: "Religion vs. Science and Technology in Bram Stoker's DRACULA"
    (but evidence is not for a fight of them, more 'depended on each other')

    Hi Wusel,

    I wouldn't use "vs." in your context. Although vs. does not necessarily mean a fight/competition between people or teams it implies a sort of dichotomy between two terms. Your topic suggests to the reader that religion and science are somewhat contradictory and exclusively. It wouldn't make for a good start if you had to explain why your heading should not be understood as it is usually understood.

    You could probably try: The interdependence of Religion, Science... etc.

    Perhaps it's "vis-a-vis" that you're thinking of, rather than "versus"?

    Why not just 'science and religion in...'

    Morning, thanks for your comments. but I also found in a dictionary the meaning: to compare advantages of two opposing things/ideas
    I'll see, Wusel
