The meaning of the word "Versus" in this interview of Steve Jobs
In an interview, Steve Jobs says
"It's to shake off this uh... this uh... erroneous notion that life is.. is there and you're just gonna live in it versus embrace it, change it, improve it, make your mark upon it."
I think 'versus' is used as a proposition like 'against' only, and I haven't met a sentence like this before. I can get he just used it with the meaning of "on the contrary, in contrast, etc" though.
I hope someone can explain more about it in detail.
Thank you very much in advance.
