Bertrand Russell in his autobiography told of his youthful adherence to
Hegelianism and wrote of his relief when one day he abandoned it and "a
table became just a table."

I once was impressed by some form of "Hegelianism". Seems to me it was long
ago. I'm now baffled by Hegelian confusion, specially "dialectics" (a
methodology, you say? Where can I read the manual please?). "Hegel" now
makes me turn on all my rational warnings.
