    Hola...non entiendo el sentido de estes frases:

    “Un ser absoluto, erigido como réplica al ser relativo de Heráclito, acaba en el camino del absurdo.”


    AND


    “...el ser absoluto erigido en su lugar no resulta menos absurdo.”


    No comprendo "erigido como" y "erigido en"



    Gracias!

    Erigido = Erected, set up
    "An absolute being, set up as a copy of Heraclit's relative being..."
    and
    "...the absolute being set up in its place is no less absurd".

    Actually, the last phrase would be referring to Heraclito, so it would be "in HIS place."
