This chapter puts forward a revisionary reading of Hegel's reception in Britain at the turn of the 19th century, in suggesting that the stance of the British Hegelians is very close to the sort of non-metaphysical or category theory interpretations that have been in vogue amongst contemporary commentators. It is shown that the British Hegelians arrived at this position as a way of responding to the hostile existentialist reaction to Hegel begun by F. W. J. Schelling in the 1840s, which led them to abandon the standard Neoplatonic reading of his idealism, and arrive at the sort of non-metaphysical account which is most fully developed by J. M. E. McTaggart in his interpretation of Hegel's Logic.

Keywords:   Hegel, metaphysics, categories, idealism, British Hegelians, F. W. J. Schelling, J. M. E. McTaggart, Logic
