Excerpt from A History of Philosophy, Vol. 3 of 3: German Philosophy Since Hegel

1had reached the most important of these works. An unplea Sant encounter with his hitherto intimate friend, Professor Gans, which was occasioned by the political questions of the day, also occurred, and embittered the last weeks of his life. 3. The words spoken at his grave, to the effect that the Satraps would have to share Alexanders kingdom amongst 'them, were followed by a war of succession more quickly than the speaker had imagined. The process of dissolution began In the Hegelian school soon after the death of its founder. AC companying this dissolution, which Is the negative side of the process of philosophical development after Hegel, we undoubt edly have, as its positive complement, the construction of new systems. Apart from the fact that most of those who assumed the latter work had been actively engaged in the process of dissolution, it will facilitate our survey if we first group together those phenomena which it can be proved all led to a common goal. This certainly involves the drawback that many authors will be discussed in two different parts in the treatise. By any other method, however, it would be still more difficult to find one's way through the labyrinth of post-hegelian litera ture. But such a separation has been resorted to only when it appeared absolutely necessary. Where it Was not necessary. And where a philosopher was mentioned for the first time, I have at once said everything regarding him that I had in tended to say in this book. With this explanation we may turn to our double task. In accordance with our method, it will first be shown how the three points just referred to, in which Hegel had proved himself a restorer, were again brought into question after his death. They arose in the order in which they have been enumerated above, and indeed, so that the interest of the philosophical public for each of the three questions was sustained for pretty nearly the same period. After the logico metaphysical question alone had been ventilated for about half a dozen years the question raised by the philosophy of religion came suddenly to the front, to give place after about the same interval of time to the politico social question. We have thus given in advance the three divisions into which the negative part of this investigation is divided.
