The Things I Have to Put Up With, Pt 2

Ahh…the French.

Being is equally beyond negation as beyond affirmation. Affirmation is always affirmation of something; that is, the act of affirming is distinguished from the thing affirmed. But if we suppose an affirmation in which the affirmed comes to fulfill the affirming and is confused with it, this affirmation can not be affirmed–owing to too much of plenitude and the immediate inherence of the noema in the noesis.”

(Jean-Paul Sartre, Being and Nothingness, lxv.)
