S. Austin Allibone, comp.  Prose Quotations from Socrates to Macaulay.  1880.
  The synthesis consists in assuming the causes discovered and established as principles, and by them explaining the phænomena proceeding from them, and proving the explanations.
Sir Isaac Newton.    
  Synthetic method is that which begins with the parts, and leads onward to the knowledge of the whole: it begins with the most simple principles and general truths, and proceeds by degrees to that which is drawn from them, or compounded of them; and therefore it is called the method of composition.
Dr. Isaac Watts.
