|Negation, philosophy, logic: negation of a sentence. In logic, this is done by prefixing the negation symbol. Colloquially expressed by the word "not", which can be at different positions in the sentence. If the negation refers only to one sentence part, this must be made clear by the position, e.g. a predicate can be denied without negating the whole sentence. In logic, therefore, inner and outer negation is distinguished by the use of different symbols._____________Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them.

Baraldi I 121f
Negation/Luhmann/GLU: negation has functional primacy, because it allows to keep the world accessible.
Negation has the form of reference to other possibilities. It establishes the world reference of social and psychic systems and makes it possible to constitute the meaning of every communication and every thought.
