Kant was to be scraped like a caddis

Anonyme, The Contemporary Review, Londres, A. Strahan, 1894, p. 732.

Kant was to be scraped, like a caddis or the sea-god Glaucus in Plato, and when the shells and seaweed with which he had encrusted himself were removed, then he would shine forth as he was in himself and his light would guide his disciples far along that path on which he himself had advanced only a little way.
