The subject is a purpose unto itself
The subject is a purpose unto itself, the concept that has its means and subjective reality in the objectivity subjugated to it.
. . .
The living being is hereby the impulse to posit as its OWN this world which is other than it, to posit itself equal to it, to sublate the world and objectify itself.
. . .
Now the subject, in so far as in being determined in its need it connects with the outside and consequently is itself something external or an instrument, exercises violence over the object.
