Here the Self sees its certainty of itself as such become the thing most emptied of essence; it sees its pure personality become absolute impersonality.  The spirit of its gratitude is thus just as much the sentiment of this profound abjection as it is that of the most profound revolt.  Since the pure I sees itself outside itself, and all torn to shreds in this shredding of everything that has any continuity and universality to it, what we call Law, Good, and Rights is disintegrated in one fell swoop and falls into the abyss.” (Hegel, Phenomenology of Mind)
