in limit, something marks the boundary of its other

in limit, something marks the boundary of its other

1. in limit, something marks the boundary of its other.
. . .

2. that something has existence only in limit, and that, since limit and immediate existence are each at the same time the negative of each other,

3. the something, which is now only in its limit, equally separates itself from itself, points beyond itself to its non-being and declares it to be its being, and so it passes over into it. . . .

that something is what it is only in its limit.

4. The other determination is the unrest of the something in its limit in which it is immanent, the contradiction that propels it beyond itself.

5. The something, posited with its immanent limit as the contradiction of itself by virtue of which it is directed and driven out and beyond itself, is the finite.
