Feynman and Hegel

Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel was a German philosopher whose books are very difficult to read. He was very active during the 19th Century. Feynman was born 100 years ago in 1918. He was a neat-looking American physicist always talking in a straight-forward manner, often with cartoons and diagrams. It is agreed that he was the best American-born physicist.

Why is Hegel so strange to physicists?

I did some research along this direction primarily for personal reasons. I received my PhD degree in 1961, but did not become an independent thinker until 1965. Since then, I have been at odd with the physics establishment in the United States. I spent many years to find out what is wrong with me. My trouble has been and still may be that I am a Hegelianist, while there is a thick barrier between Hegel and the profession of physics.
