 Comte and Dunoyer Chap. 6
Comte's solution provides a stimulating defence of property with interesting implications for the rights of native inhabitants to their traditional land, an innovative use of the Lockean proviso in the original acquisition of property, and a defence of the factory system and wage labour with obvious contemporary relevance.
Comte believed that the market system required that all the vestiges of legal servitude be finally removed by a combination of political and legal revolution or reform, which would lead to the rewriting of the legal codes through which servitude was defined and protected.
Comte divided the subject of property into three main groups: "appropriation" in general, "occupation" and "possession." The reason for this division is to lay the foundation for his explanation and defence of property which would at the same time be the grounds for a critique of the existing distribution of property.

 Reasons for Dissenting from the Philosophy of M. Comte by Herbert Spencer
Comte reprobates the interpretation of different classes of phenomena by assigning metaphysical entities as their causes; and I coincide in the opinion that the assumption of such separate entities, though convenient, if not indeed necessary, for purposes of thought, is, scientifically considered, illegitimate.
Comte's ideal of society is one in which government is developed to the greatest extent - in which class-functions are far more under conscious public regulation than now-in which hierarchical organisation with unquestioned authority shall guide everything - in which the individual life shall be subordinated in the greatest degree to the social life.
Comte, not including in his philosophy the consciousness of a cause manifested to us in all phenomena, and yet holding that there must be a religion, which must have an object, takes for his object- Humanity.

 Augusto Comte en el Diccionario de filosofía contemporánea / 1976
La filosofía de A. Comte, secretario particular de Saint-Simon, fundador del positivismo e inventor de la sociología, hay que entenderla como un producto típico –quizá el primero que lo es clara y completamente– de la sociedad industrial del siglo XIX.
A ese núcleo de ideas Comte añadió –sobre todo al final de sus días– una doctrina de la religión de la humanidad que servía de adecuado complemento ideológico al sistema.
Aunque frecuentemente preterido por quienes hoy propugnan todavía una concepción estrechamente positivista, este apéndice religioso de la doctrina de Comte es en el fondo un tanto a favor de la coherencia del sistema (al mismo tiempo que un índice del valor de ideología que hay que atribuir al mismo).

 Comte Saint-Germain: The Immortal German Alchemist.
The commonest hypothesis about his birth is that Saint-Germain was the natural son of the widow of Charles II of Spain and a certain Comte (Count) Adanero, whom she knew at Bayonne.
The Comte de Saint-Germain was a man "of middle height, strongly built, and dressed with superb simplicity." He spoke with an entire lack of ceremony to the most highly placed personages and was fully conscious of his superiority.
Mademoiselle de Genlis asserts that she met the Comte de Saint-Germain in 1821 during the negotiations for the Treaty of Vienna; and the Comte de Chalons, who was ambassador in Venice, said he spoke to him there soon afterwards in the Piazza di San Marco.
