This is a free translation and abridgement of Comte' s greatest and monumental work, Cours de philosophie positive (1830-42). It is a work that inaugurates the history of science and the new science of sociology. Comte' s philosophy emerged from his study of the progress of the European mind, based on mathematics, astronomy, physics, chemistry and biology. Besides France, his work was particularly influential in England through John Stuart Mill's great interest.
