"Hegel is commonly viewed as having attempted something truly magnificent and as having failed to preposterously to achieve it. But when we view his systematic thought as philosophical narrative, it turns out to be quite achievable (though still not modest in its pretensions)." 

- John McCumber, Time in the Ditch: American Philosophy and the McCarthy Era
