Without prevention, or obstruction from or by; in spite of.

Note: Notwithstanding was, by Johnson and Webster, viewed as
a participle absolute, an English equivalent of the
Latin non obstante. Its several meanings, either as
preposition, adverb, or conjunction, are capable of
being explained in this view. Later grammarians, while
admitting that the word was originally a participle,
and can be treated as such, prefer to class it as a
preposition or disjunctive conjunction.
Syn: In spite of; despite.
, In spite of
. Of these,
only notwithstanding can be used postpositively; as, I
will go, the weather notwithstanding. With respect to
meaning, these words and phrases are often
interchanged, but there is a difference between them,
chiefly in strength. Notwithstanding is the weaker
term, and simply points to some obstacle that may
exist; as, I shall go, notwithstanding the rain. In
spite or despite of has reference primarily to active
opposition to be encountered from others; as, “I'll
be, in man's despite, a monarch; ” “I'll keep mine
own, despite of all the world.”
--Shak. Hence, these
words, when applied to things, suppose greater
opposition than notwithstanding. We should say. ''He
was thrust rudely out of doors in spite of his
entreaties,'' rather than “notwithstanding”
. On the
other hand, it would be more civil to say,
“Notwithstanding all you have said, I must still
differ with you.”
