    Insists that 'Auguste Comte and his religion belong to the past [...] and neither Pierre Laffitte nor a chair at the Collège de France can revive them'. Also complains that 'the new and living sciences, full of results, and promising still greater results, are not represented [....] all the sciences of observation and experience which have been revived or created by our contemporaries, are still without a chair'.
