Abstract:

"The present work is based upon lectures given at Harvard University in the autumn of 1869 and spring of 1871. At the outset these lectures were designed to include only a criticism of the Positive Philosophy, or Positivism, but I have enlarged the course to make it include a somewhat complete outline-sketch of the new philosophy based on the Doctrine of Evolution. The extravagant claim of Positivism to stand for the whole of attainable scientific philosophy is, I trust, finally disposed of of when it is shown that a system of philosophy has been constructed, out of purely scientific materials and by the employment of scientific methods, which opposes a direct negative to every one of the theorems of which Positivism is made up; I call this system Cosmic Philosophy"--Book.
