English term or phrase: taken all together and aufgehoben...
Here the sentence like this:" The state is brought into being to protect its citizens. That is why it exists: to provide security while we get on with our life-activities, whick taken all together and aufgehoben constitute the economy."

How to understand " taken all together and aufgehoben constitute the economy."?

Thank you!

Explanation:
It might hint at Hegel's Aufhebung, used as such in English.


For Hegel, history (like logic) proceeds in every small way through sublation. For example, the Oriental, Greek and Roman Empires (in which the individual is ignored or annihilated, then recognized, and finally suppressed by the States) are preserved and destroyed in the German Empire, which, for Hegel, placed the individual in harmony with the State.

Another possible synonym I've come across is "transcended":

but the most accurate term remains "sublated".

It could also be parsed as: "activities, which, as an abstract(ive) whole, constitute the economy".
