A Short Note On Hegelian Dialectics

In Hegel’s dialectical movement, contradictions are necessarily internalized, and there is always a remainder, a leftover from the process of sublation. Therefore contradiction is a simple negation of an object, a necessity of its determination, and the remainder is the negation of negation. Simply put the first negation is a necessity for determination, second negation is essential to it’s truth. Hegel says in his Logic, in determination of infinite, finitude is excluded from it’s being; simply what is finite cannot be finite, but in essence infinite in this movement internalizes finitude in it’s essence, or simply finitude which is fundamental contradiction of infinitude is sublated in it’s simple determination. Then what happens to the remainder? This remainder which is excluded in being but already internalized in essence appears in unity, in the absolute, the stable totality. Totality is the collective interconnectedness of all moments in it’s becoming, this remainder is a moment through its exclusion, representing movement which Hegel calls as negation of negation, or more precisely negation of sublated negation, or double negation. The role of this remainder can only be activated retrospectively as an essential moment of the object’s totality
