Hegel, Bode’s Law and the Missing Planet

  title={Hegel, Bode’s Law and the Missing Planet},
  author={C. Cunningham},
If it is no longer easy to find new whole things, then we must go back to those already found, divide and analyse them further, and bring to light fresh aspects of thinghood in them. This restless, insatiable instinct can never run out of material; to discover a new genus of major importance, or even a new planet which, although an individual, possesses the nature of a universal, can be the lot of only a lucky few. Georg Hegel, 1807
