Abstraction is a conceptual process by which higher, more conceptual concepts are derived from the usage and classification of literal (i.e. ""real"" or ""concrete"") concepts. An ""abstraction"" (noun) is a concept that acts as super-categorical noun for all subordinate concepts, and connects any related concepts as a group, field, or category.
