I would say "yes" ! I would use them in the same order of meaning and explanation.
 
You give explanations and examples to defend your position : thesis.
You give opposite explanations and opposites examples you think wrong : antithesis.
You make a short summary comparing both : synthesis.
 
Merry Christmas.
