Sublation

 

(in German, Aufheben), a fundamental category in the philosophy of G. Hegel. Hegel asserted that sublation has “a dual sense; it means to keep, to preserve, and at the same time to discontinue, to cease” (Soch., vol. 5, Moscow, 1937, p. 99). According to dialectical materialism, sublation includes the moment of negation but comprises more: it also affirms the interrelationships and unity of things and phenomena.
