the derivation of the real from the concept
the derivation of the real from the concept, if " derivation " is what we want to call it, consists at first essentially in this,
that the concept in its formal abstraction reveals itself to be incomplete and through a dialectic immanently grounded in it passes over into reality;
it passes over into it, however, as into something which it generate, out of itself, not as if it were falling back again onto a ready made reality which it finds opposite it,
or as if it were taking refuge, because it sought for something better but found none, into something that has already been proven to be the unessential element of appearance.
