Hegel 0, The Planets 1

I like Hegel, really. I like him even in all his moments of madness that you mentioned. He even tried to deduce the exact number of planets as an attribute of the absolute. That was a big risk, which was immediately rewarded by the discovery of another planet [Uranus].

-Alain Badiou, in German Philosophy: A Dialogue, pg. 23
