"To meet a want long felt, I have ventured to compose and publish this volume in the hope that it might help to familiarize American students with the writings of Auguste Comte and his French and English disciples. This is the first short essay which attempts to explain, in a popular way, the much misunderstood Religion of Humanity. I am painfully conscious of the many defects of this volume, hut my object will have been accomplished if I can succeed in attracting attention to a subject which I know is of the very highest human importance. The Conversations which follow were actual utterances, taken down by a stenographer, and but slightly altered in copy. The style is not as compact as if the "pen steadied the mind" during composition, but its informal character may help, perhaps, to make the subject understandable to plain people. Those who believe as I do, are firmly convinced that Positivism is the most important subject which can now engage the attention of human beings. It affords a solution--and, as we think, the only solution--of nearly all the problems now puzzling and distracting the race. For every question in Religion, Morality, and the relations of life it has an answer. It treats of God, Immortality, Duty, the Woman, the Labor, and the Government questions, from the standpoint, of the latest revelations of science"--Preface.
