Victor Cousin and Hegel

This post summarises the relations between French eclectic philosopher and historian of philosophy Victor Cousin (1792-1867) and Hegel. Cousin was very influential in the institutionalisation of philosophy in the French education system in the 19th century. He wrote books on John Locke and Condillac; the "Scottish school of common sense" (Hutcheson, Reid and Adam Smith); and Immanuel Kant.
