“My principal amusement this winter has been resisting the inroads of Hegelism in our University. My colleague Palmer, a recent convert, and a man of much ability has been making an active propaganda among the more advanced students. It is a strange thing, this resurrection of Hegel in England and here, after his burial in Germany.”--Letter to Charles Renouvier, 27 December 1880.
