Isidore Auguste Marie François Xavier Comte (19 February 1798? 5 September 1857), better known as Auguste Comte, was a French philosopher.

Positivism is a philosophy of science based on the view that information derived from sensory experience, logical and mathematical treatments is the exclusive source of all authoritative knowledge, that there is valid knowledge (truth) only in scientific knowledge. Verified data received from the senses is known as empirical evidence. This view, when applied to the social as to the natural sciences, holds that society operates according to general laws like the physical world. Introspective and intuitive knowledge is rejected
The positive philosophy of Auguste Comte by Auguste Comte( Book )

63 editions published between 1853 and 2009 in English and held by 858 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Positive Philosophy of Auguste Comte is a condensed English version of the French philosopher's controversial work, freely translated by Harriet Martineau and published in two volumes in 1853. Martineau's abridged and more easily digestible version of Comte's work was intended to be readily accessible to a wide general readership, particularly those she felt to be morally and intellectually adrift, and Comte's philosophy indeed attracted a significant following in Britain in the later nineteenth century. Comte's 'doctrine' promoted personal and public ethics and social cohesion based no longer on metaphysics but on strict scientific method, and anticipated twentieth-century logical positivism and secular humanism. The first volume of this translation contains Parts 1 to 5 and sets out the nature and importance of positivism, leading on to an overview of the 'positive sciences': mathematics, astronomy, physics, chemistry and biology

Catéchisme positiviste, ou Sommaire exposition de la religion naturelle by Auguste Comte( )

2 editions published in 2015 in French and held by 452 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Extrait : "Je me suis souvent demandé, mon cher père, pourquoi vous persistez à qualifier de religion votre doctrine universelle, quoiqu'elle rejette toute croyance surnaturelle. Mais, en y réfléchissant, j'ai considéré que ce titre s'applique communément à beaucoup de systèmes différents, et même incompatibles, dont chacun se l'approprie exclusivement, sans qu'aucun d'eux ait jamais cessé de compter, chez l'ensemble de notre espèce, plus d'adversaires que d'adhérents."

The correspondence of John Stuart Mill and Auguste Comte by John Stuart Mill( Book )

12 editions published between 1994 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents eighty-nine letters exchanged between John Stuart Mill and Auguste Comte between 1841 and 1847. They address important issues of the mid-nineteenth century in philosophy, science, economics, and politics. Cumulatively, these letters provide a humanistic view of Western Europe and its social problems. They add valuable perspective to what we know about the work of Mill and Comte, in a critical period of English and French thought. The correspondence begins with an admiring letter from Mill who considers himself a positivist at the tune and writes to Comte as to an elder colleague. A close friendship developed, in the course of which they discussed matters of common concern. Their understanding extends to personal experiences, including their respective mental crises at an early age. The opinions expressed about their contemporaries are significant and include comments on Thomas Carlyle, John and Sarah Austin, and Alexander Bain, on philosophers and major authors in France, Germany, and Italy. Mill and Comte eventually encountered issues on which they could not come to consensus, especially the equality of women. While Mill was an ardent defender of women's rights, Comte supported the traditional hierarchy that endowed men with social and political superiority

Catéchisme positiviste by Auguste Comte( Book )

32 editions published between 1852 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rédigé en 1852, au milieu de l'élaboration du Système de politique positive (1851-1854), le Catéchisme positiviste en justifie dès l'abord pleinement le sous-titre de Traité de sociologie instituant la religion de l'Humanité. En effet, les onze entretiens entre une jeune femme et un prêtre de l'humanité qui composent l'ouvrage constituent à la fois une vivante méditation de l'idée d'Humanité et un résumé dense, complet et didactique, de la foi positive proprement dite. Le Catéchisme positiviste est donc bien en ce sens ce qu'on pourrait appeler une œuvre de propagande; et cela, sans cesser pour autant d'être philosophique. D'une part, le dialogue se déploie en effet sous la bannière d'une religion nouvelle, le positivisme, à qui son fondateur réserve rien moins que l'avenir humain. Mais aussi bien ce catéchisme n'a-t-il point été écrit, d'autre part, afin de cultiver en l'esprit oisif et confortable de vains doutes et de stériles hypothèses. Il s'agirait plutôt ici de donner des convictions actives aux hommes et aux femmes du peuple, dont les fantômes théologiques, mis définitivement à terre par la Révolution, ne sauraient désormais plus nourrir la raison comme le cœur. Il appartiendra donc au lecteur de comprendre comment, élevant les sciences modernes à la dignité d'une philosophie organique, Comte a pu également découvrir en elles les germes d'une spiritualité profondément humaine, d'après laquelle tracer les plans d'une République encore à venir : sans Dieu ni Roi
