The Philosophy of Auguste Comte

Excerpt from The Philosophy of Auguste Comte Now one great fact, above all others, dominates the period in which the positive philosophy appeared. It is the French Revolution, as Comte expressly states: without it, neither the theory of progress, nor consequently social science, nor conse quently again positive philosophy would have been possible. Was it not, moreover, inevitable that this extraordinary social upheaval should by reflex action have determined a vast and prolonged movement in philosophical and political specula tion? The effects of this reflex action varied accord ing to the value and the originality of the minds which experienced them. But in the greatest as in the most mediocre we recognise infallibly certain common features. For instance, men and women, in the rising generation at the beginning of the XIX. Century, never fail to put the same question to themselves What social institutions should be established after the Revolution? And by this all understand, not only the political form of government, but the very prin ciples of social order: a problem which appeared as urgent from the practical point of View, as it was supreme from the theoretical point of view. It is this problem in various forms which preoccupies Chateaubriand as well as Fourier and saint-simon, and Joseph de Maistre as well as Cousin and Comte.
