Perfect Delirium of Theoretic Rapture

In commenting on an excellent post on dream skepticism at Philosophy, etc., I linked to the following classic discussion of Hegel by William James, which is so good (and funny) it deserves a link here as well:

Subjective Effects of Nitrous Oxide

Go and read it in order to learn how Hegel's philosophy is like being drugged up on laughing gas. If nothing else, it would deserve to be remembered for the lines, "What's nausea but a kind of -usea?" and "That sounds like nonsense, but it's pure onsense!"
