Arch Pediatr Adolesc Med. 1998;152(6):606. doi:

The article by Parent and Shevell in the January 1998 ARCHIVES1 is well researched, well written, and important to read. Nevertheless, it contains a manifest falsehood that must be set right. On page 85, the authors assert: "Under the Nazis, the prevailing ethic was a Hegelian one, in which ‘ends justified means'." Delete the reference to Hegel, and the sentence would be true.
