  • Let us confess how utterly our modern world lacks the whole type of a Heraclitus, Plato, Empedocles, and whatever other names these royal and magnificent hermits of the spirit had; and how it is with considerable justification that, confronted with such representatives of philosophy as are here today, thanks to fashion, as much on top as they are really at the bottom - in Germany, for example, the two lions of Berlin, the anarchis Eugen Duehring and the amalgamist Eduard von Hartmann - a solid man of science may feel that he is of a better type and descent.
