Excerpt from On the Philosophy of History: An Address to the Historical Society, University of Glasgow, January 8, 1909

On the Philosophy of History One of the stories in the life of Hegel tells how another philosopher asked him to 'deduce his quill pen,' i.e. to prove and justify on metaphysical grounds a particular accidental thing. The problem, it is held, was ridiculous, and showed in the other philosopher a misapprehension of the scope of philosophy. Yet when Hegel deals with history, one is reminded of this frivolous problem, and led to ask whether the Philosophy of History is not the same kind of impossibility - a deduction, a metaphysical proof, of particular contingencies, which are in their nature unreasonable. The dilemma seems to be obvious. The philosopher in dealing with history may work out a formula of progress or development; but to do this effectively and clearly must he not neglect the accidents and chances of the mortal life which is the matter of history?
