Summary
"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"--Preface.
