Synonyms Obdurate, Callous, Hardened. These words all wthhold the initial concept of actual hardening, though it is obsolescent with obdurate. Into the moral signification, the figure is many considered when you look at the using callous, which suggests sensibilities to right and wrong deadened by tough treatment, like callous flesh. Hardened is less definite, it being not at all times clear if the individual is viewed as made hard by situations or as having hardened himself against better impacts and proper claims. Obdurate is the strongest, and suggests most of determination and energetic opposition. See obstinate.
