Although the philosophical theory of positivism has long been in the history of western thought, it was August Comte who formulated this modern approach. Positivism holds that society operates according to general laws and that concepts such as introspection and intuition are to be rejected (as are metaphysics and theology), as they cannot be verified by sense experience. In this book, Comte describes the six major features of the system of this philosophy, going into detail about such things as education, flags, the role of the arts, etc. Chapters include: The Intellectual Character Of Positivism; The Social Aspect Of Positivism, As Shown By Its Connexion With The General Revolutionary Movement Of Western Europe; The Action Of Positivism Upon The Working Classes; The Influence Of Positivism Upon Women; The Relation Of Positivism To Art; and, The Religion Of Humanity.
