The unhappy consciousness is the incomplete consciousness. It is self-consciousness which is not conscious of itself seeking its absolute goal, which is knowing itself absolutely. It is self-subjugation which results in an otherness to itself, fulfilling its own negation without obtaining the truth in its being. It is a unknowing drive lost in a subordinate want of fulfillment and becoming, for consciousness, the self which relates to its surroundings through its submission to a conditioned field of existence.
