monovalence

a) The state of being univalent

The mystical shell of Hegelian dialectics is ontological monovalence, manifest inter alia in the absence of the concept of determinate absence.

b) The view, dating from , that whatever exists must always have existed and cannot ever change or cease to exist.

Yet, if the critique of Dialectic is to be followed then these positive aspects of Hegel are swallowed up by his monovalence.
