9781330388884: The Positive Philosophy of Auguste Comte, Vol. 1 of 2 (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Positive Philosophy of Auguste Comte, Vol. 1 of 2

In close connection with this was another of my reasons. The supreme dread of every one who cares for the good of nation or race is that men should be adrift for want of an anchorage for their convictions. I believe that no one questions that a very large proportion of our people are now so adrift. With pain and fear, we see that a multitude, who might and should be among the wisest and best of our citizens, are alienated for ever from the kind of faith which sufficed for all in an organic period which has passed away, while no one has presented to them, and they cannot obtain for themselves, any ground of conviction as firm and clear as that which sufficed for our fathers in their day. The moral dangers of such astate of fluctuation as has thus arisen are fearful in the ex treme, whether the transition stage from one order of convictions to another be long or short. The work of M. Comte is unquestion ably the greatest single effort that has been made to obviate this kind of danger; and my deep persuasion is that it will be found to retrieve a vast amount of wandering, of unsound speculation, of listless or reckless doubt, and of moral uncertainty and depression.
