Innovation is not possible without a gaping in the heart of the plenitude of the 'same'. 'Same' affirmed and posed absolutely as itself remains necessarily closed on itself. From this 'same', closed on itself, nothing 'else' can be. For something else to be it is necessary that the 'same' is denied as 'same' and affirms itself while being opposed as an 'other'. But a negation which affirms itself becomes necessarily an assertion. An opposition when posing itself is necessarily a position. The 'other' risks unceasingly to be a 'same', closing itself on itself. Unless leaving open the infinite otherness of the 'other-other'…
The logos is 'passing over' through difference and conquers unity. Dialectics goes right through human specificity, as its major dynamics. Dialectics is the total movement which in a dynamic field founds the difference to going through it and beyond, exceed it. That means the conquest of the positive value through the negative one.
Man is a differential animal founder of gaping in the plenitude of what is given by nature and unceasingly pvovoked to fill this gaping while continuously founding new gaping in every filling.
Dialectics implies a moment of negation. It is its essential moment. Dialectics means contradiction AND assumption-going beyond (Aufhebung: Auf-heben, in German, literally 'to take' and 'to raise') of contradiction. Assertion faces negation. Negation faces assertion. This confrontation, however, does not remain indefinite confrontation on the same level. It does not end either in the unilateral victory of one side over the other, which would do nothing but lock up the process in a stagnant assertion. On the contrary, from this confrontation a THIRD moment emerges which begins again in assumption-going beyond (Aufhebung) the first two antagonistic moments and, consequently, means sudden appearance of innovation. This third new term, while continuing, faces a new negation. And so on. The total process of dialectical becomes thus movement ahead, progress.
A being is alive being, writes Hegel in the 'Science of Logic II', insofar it contains in itself a contradiction and is itself this force to seize and to maintain the contradiction in itself. The internal dynamics of the dialectical process, its motor nerve, is the negation. Not 'one' negation, but simply negation. Negation as a permanent contesting. Negation and negation of negation ad infinitum. And Hegel continues: contradiction is the root of any movement and of any vital expression; only insofar it contains a contradiction that something is capable of movement, of activity, of expressing tendencies or impulses.
If the confrontation is reduced to the simple suppression of one side compared to the other, going-beyond does not mean anything more than the subsistence of a position. Le combat cesse faute de combattants! The confrontation must thus remain permanent. And true dialectics means this uninterrupted progression of a position which meets unceasingly an opposition, which opposition, being fixed in its position, must in its turn face a new opposition. And so on.
The crossing of the difference is an increase. The confrontation of otherness enriches. Through the distance a more authentic proximity is gained. It is through the rupture that plenitude occurs. It is by overcoming an opposition that the position is consolidated. It is in its passage through the negation that the assertion reaches its truth.
Exodus... 'Trans' indicates the opening of the human reality. It says at the same time that man does not have the last word on himself. Mankind is by itself an open word. Man is symbol of difference, the visible half of the Other one and his emerged part.
