  • <strong>Synonyms</strong> <em>Requisite, Requirement.</em> That which is required by the nature of the case, or is only indirectly thought of as reqnired by a person, is called a <em>requisite</em>; that which is viewed as required directly by a person or persons is called a <em>requirement</em>: thus, a certain study is in the one aspect a <em>requisite</em> and in the other a <em>requirement</em> for admission to college; we speak of the <em>requisites</em> to a great commander or to a successful life; of the <em>requirements</em> in a candidate for a clerkship. Hence, generally, a <em>requisite</em> is more absolutely necessary or essential than a <em>requirement</em>; a <em>requisite</em> is more often material than a <em>requirement</em>; a <em>requisite</em> may be a possession or something that may be viewed as a possession, but a <em>requirement</em> is a thing to be done or learned.
