But strictly speaking, Chernyshevsky himself and his followers drew from the Criticism of Philosophical Prejudices far more sweeping conclusions than the character of the premises warranted.
Но, строго говоря, как сам Н. Г. Чернышевский, так и его последователи делали из «критики философских предубеждений» выводы более широкие, чем это допускалось характером посылок.

Riding in the ambulance on a stretcher I could not tell what part of town we were passing through but when they unloaded the stretcher I saw a market-place and an open wine shop with a girl sweeping out.
Лежа в автомобиле на носилках я не мог определить, какими улицами мы едем, но когда носилки вытащили, я увидел рыночную площадь и распахнутую дверь закусочной, откуда девушка выметала сор.

There is as yet not enough hard evidence to justify any sweeping conclusions about the use of blood type to determine personality, but a world of information is waiting to be annexed and explored.
Да, пока не хватает абсолютно убедительных доказательств для проверки и очистки предположений, которые применяются в определении характера личности по группе крови, однако еще целые горы информации ждут исследований и обобщений.

Тем не менее, сфера действия статьи 46 Федерального закона 1998 г. является настолько широкой, что возникают серьезные сомнения о соответствии этой статьи Конвенции ООН 1961 г. с изменениями, а также Европейской Конвенции по правам человека.

His swarthy cheek and raven black hair spoke of the fiery south, and he wore his long black cloak swathed across his chest and over his shoulders in a graceful sweeping fashion, which was neither English nor French.
Смуглые щеки и волосы, как вороново крыло, свидетельствовали о том, что он с пламенного юга, а длинный черный плащ лежал на груди и плечах такими изящными складками, какие не были в моде ни у французов, ни у англичан.
