The St. Louis Hegelians

Kerry Howley reports on "what turned out to be one of the oddest episodes in the history of American thought, [when] a group of men known as the St. Louis Hegelians declared that the direction of history led to eastern Missouri" — Hegel hits the frontier.

(Perhaps not as odd, and perhaps more rational, are the Boston Confucians.)
