Dear experts,

May we assume that both ENGAGE IN and ENGAGE WITH can be employed to mean "be actively involved with something; deal with something:

Those who are too smart to ENGAGE IN politics are punished by being governed by those who are dumber.

All religions attempt to ENGAGE WITH the problem of the existence of suffering in this world.

or is ENGAGE WITH used with a somewhat different meaning "make an effort to understand and deal with something"?

Thank you,

You've actually answered your own question, my friend! Wink

Your definitions for engage in and engage with are fine. And, as you've noted, they convey different meanings.
