I just came across this quote on another list (HOPOS, concerned with the
history and philosophy of science).

'The determination of the individuality of the elements is not the beginning
but the end of the conceptual development; it is the logical goal, which we
approach by the progressive connection of universal relations. The procedure
of mathematics here points to the analogous procedure of theoretical natural
science, for which it contains the key and the justification.' (E. Cassirer,
Substance and Function, 1910, p.94)

So: whose afraid of Georg Hegel?
