Don't Get Hegel?

Schopenhauer explains why Hegel's a ...ah...challenge:

But the greatest effrontery in serving up sheer nonsense, in scribbling together senseless and maddening webs of words, such as had previously been heard only in madhouses, finally appeared in Hegel. It became the instrument of the most ponderous and general mystification that has ever existed, with a result that will seem incredible to posterity, and be a lasting monument to German stupidity.

I guess he didn't get it, either.
