Thus Sittlichkeit is related to the current word for 'custom', Sitte, and can thus be assumed to have originally meant 'customary' rather than 'individual' morality. Hegel is more inclined to explore the etymology of native words than of loan-words, since Moralität also derives from the Latin for 'custom', mos (plural: mores). But he appeals to foreign etymologies when the occasion arises. He stresses the derivation of Existenz ('EXISTENCE') from the Latin existere, 'to step, stand forth'. When apparent synonyms are differentiated in this way, Hegel rarely supposes them to be merely different.

Wolff was originally a mathematician and he believed that philosophy should be presented with mathematical clarity and rigour. When a term is introduced, it must, on his view, be clearly defined, and it must not be used subsequently in a sense other than that originally assigned to it. We must not use two or more terms synonymously: apparent synonyms must be given distinct, well-defined senses.
