Definition
to turn something in the opposite position — such as upside down, inside out, or (of two things) in switched position
  • To share lodgings with a brilliant dinner-companion, or to see your favorite politician in the Ministry, may bring about changes quite as rapid: in these cases too we begin by knowing little and believing much, and we sometimes end by inverting the quantities.
