A priori prejudice in Weyl's unintended unification of gravitation and electricity

Abstract
It is almost always claimed that Weyl deliberately unified gravitation and electricity in the rectification of general relativity he attempted in 1918. In fact the unification, as Bergia and Ryckman have pointed out and a couple of passages show, was the unintended outcome of apparently gratuitous a priori prejudice. But what prejudice? The evidence suggests that the theory came straight out of Weyl
