How to use Hegelians in a sentence
The same theory assumes a more subtle form, especially in the writings of Hegelians.
In Berlin particularly, the headquarters of the Hegelians, the desire found expression to obtain officially from Schelling a treatment of the new system which he was understood to have in reserve.
