DOOR 6. What was the task? Year-comte?

Then I choose philosopher Auguste Comte , the founder of positivism. Certainly dog the frenchman for 160 years ago, but his ideas are alive and well in 2018, not least in the Hans rosling's book Factfulness.

Comte turned to building communities on the sprirituellt weird or religious beliefs. Everything goes out, everything is science and all the knowledge to run out of empiricism. Positivism does not hesitate, takes the out. The question is not progress, all achievements are automatically a good thing.

It is easy to sympathize with idéströmningens sanningskrav and open arms to the future. And it is easy to see its shortcomings. War would soon become obsolete and be replaced by trade, thought Auguste Comte, as rational societies do not risk lives for something so chaotic.


Here we are. Decades of technological advances have given us increased life expectancy, reduced poverty, lower growth of pandemics and a runaway climate. Still wage war and we are forcing each other on the run. In the future, it is expected extremvädren require even greater population displacements.

So, thank you for a century and a half, positivism, thanks for the 2018. But with all due respect, we have begun to falter now. This winter we do not believe in comten longer.
