This is a term used by Baader. The ternar is a trinity or triad. Baader adopts a triadic or Trinitarian structure as paradigm for totality; opposed to Schelling’s polarity of basic forces (Betanzos 43 ft 38). Trinity overcomes duality (Werke 1,205; 2,105; 7,159; 12,505; 15,447).

For Baader, the triad is completed in the quadrat or quaternity.
