Remark: The Expression ‘ To Sublate ’
2. What is sublated is not thereby reduced to nothing. Nothing is immediate; what is sublated, on the other hand, is the result of mediation; it is a non-being but as a result which had its origin in a being. It still has, therefore, in itself the determinate from which it originates.
3. ' To sublate ' has a twofold meaning in the language: on the one hand it means to preserve, to maintain, and equally it also means to cause to cease, to put an end to.
4. Even 'to preserve ' includes a negative elements, namely, that something is removed from its influences, in order to preserve it.
5. Thus what is sublated is at the same time preserved; it has only lost its immediacy but is not on that account annihilated.
