    (January 19, 1798-September 5, 1857)
    Wrote 'System of Positive Polity, or Treatise on Sociology, Instituting the Religion of Humanity' and 'The Positive Philosophy of Auguste Comte'
    Google translates his name as 'Auguste Count.'
    He developed positivism.
    Towards the end of his life he became interested in mysticism and tried to turn positivism into a religion.
    John Stuart Mill described positivism in the following way, in 'On Liberty,' 'M. Comte, in particular, whose social system, as unfolded in his Systeme de Politique Positive, aims at establishing (though by moral more than by legal appliances) a despotism of society over the individual, surpassing anything contemplated in the political ideal of the most rigid disciplinarian among the ancient philosophers.'
    He gave up reading 'for reasons of cerebral hygiene (1938).'
    He is considered one of the grandfathers of sociology.
    He died of cancer.
