"If power of analytic intellect pure and simple could suffice, the name of Chauncey Wright would assuredly be as famous as it is now obscure, for he was not merely the great mind of a village –if Cambridge will pardon the expression—but either in London or Berlin he would, with equal ease, have taken the place of master which he held with us."-- "Chauncey Wright" (1875)
