Sample text

The immutability and universality of these laws, from the working of which it must be assumed that man and the development of his intellectual capacities are not exempt, permit us to predict events 'avec une assurance presque entiere'. Since both Nature and man are governed by these laws, the idea that it might be possible 'de tracer avec quelque vraisemblance Ie tableau des destinees futures de l'espece humaine' must not be lightly dismissed as 'une entreprise chimerique'. Nor does Condorcet hesitate to describe this future condition of the human species - the universal political order, as he calls it - as the inevitable result of a preordained process: the destruction of inequality among nations, the expansion of equality within every nation, and a genuine perfecting of the human race.

Only by submission to 'une autorite spirituelle' of this kind, declared Comte, can the greatest evil of the present day - the moral and religious anarchy of the new era - be overcome and the happiness of humanity assured. ' The 'sociocratie finale' - the ultimate sovereignty, that is, of human society as a whole, which, in accordance with the laws of evolution, must inevitably emerge - starts with the premise, as Comte endeavours to prove in his 'Discours sur l'Esprit Positif', that in reality there is no such thing as the individual, but only humanity as a whole.

There thus emerges a rational absolutism, which claims to be the sole arbiter and mouthpiece of truth. When, therefore, the theorists of the revolution enunciate their theses as though they were dogmas which deserve and demand unconditional acceptance, when they proclaim the conclusions they have reached as though they were the utterances of some infallible oracle and do not shrink from wholesale condemnations, the whole process becomes elevated to the plane of a faith, a religious belief in science, which causes them to see in the laws of Nature, which they have discovered, also the laws that govern the political life of mankind.
