Comte at English => English (The Britannica Concise) Of Explained:

French thinker, the philosophical founder of sociology and of positivism. A disciple of the comte de Saint-Simon, he taught at the É cole Polytechnique (1832-42) but gave free lectures to workingmen. He gave the science of sociology its name and established the new subject on a conceptual (though not empirical) basis, believing that social phenomena could be reduced to laws just as natural phenomena could. His ideas influenced J. S. Mill (who supported him financially for many years), É . Durkheim, H. Spencer, and E. B. Tylor. His most important works are Cours de philosophie positive (6 vols., 1830-42) and Systè me de politique positive (4 vols., 1851-54).
