Positivist Social Reorganization

  • Michael Singer


I concluded the previous chapter with the observation that Comte uses the idea of prediction in the sciences to shift from the sciences of humanity as purely social description to the sciences of humanity as the basis for social action. This should remind us that even when Comte presents his thesis in theoretical terms he has his political goals in view and remains always focused on the realization of those goals. In the present chapter I explore his grand scheme of social reorganization for implementing the social developments that his philosophy has predicted.
