About the Book

"Auguste Comte and Positivism" is a critical essay written by John Stuart Mill, one of the most influential philosophers of the 19th century. The essay focuses on the ideas of Auguste Comte, a French philosopher and founder of the philosophy of positivism. In the essay, Mill examines Comte's belief that society can only be understood through scientific observation and that knowledge should be based on empirical evidence rather than speculation. Mill also critiques Comte's view that human beings should abandon the search for ultimate causes and instead focus on understanding the laws that govern social and natural phenomena. Despite his criticisms, Mill recognizes Comte's contributions to the development of the social sciences. Hereby, "Auguste Comte and Positivism" is a thought-provoking analysis of one of the most influential philosophers of the 19th century. Mill's essay continues to be studied and debated by scholars today as an important contribution to the ongoing discussion of the role of science in understanding society and the human experience.

About Author

John Stuart Mill

John Stuart Mill was an English philosopher, political economist, Member of Parliament (MP), and civil servant who lived from 20 May 1806 to 7 May 1873. He was one of the most significant intellectuals in the development of classical liberalism. The utilitarian movement was started by John Stuart Mill. Being a particularly bright youngster, he was able to read six Plato dialogues and Aesop's Fables by the age of eight. Jeremy Bentham and Francis Place provided guidance and support as John Stuart's father schooled him. At the age of eight, Mill started studying Latin, algebra, and Euclid classes. He liked to read Robinson Crusoe and Don Quixote in his free time. Along with his father, he studied David Ricardo and Adam Smith. He was deeply affected by the vibrant and welcoming culture of France. Mill was inspired to reject Bentham's theory of human nature by his correspondence with Auguste Comte. After 21 years of close friendship with Harriet Taylor, Mill wed her on April 21, 1851. After barely seven years of marriage and after experiencing acute lung congestion, she died in 1858. Thirteen days before his 67th birthday in 1873, Mill passed away from erysipelas in Avignon, France; he was buried next to his wife.
