Abstract

The significange of Comte's sociology has in the past been attributed to his effort to formulate a scientific approach to social data. This view inadequate.While Comte's early sociological ideas represented an effort to create a predictive science of progress, as a result of his confrontation with the with the problems of industrialism and with trends in conservative social thought, his orientation changed. He sought to deal with social disorganization and solidarity. In so doing,he developed a new sociology.
