A Secret Ruler of Our Time: Auguste Comte's Legacy

A Murphy Institute webinar featuring Dr. Philip Rolnick, Theology.

Date & Time:

Wednesday, April 7, 2021
12:30 PM - 1:25 PM


Online / Zoom

Dr. Philip Rolnick from the St. Paul Seminary will discuss the legacy of philosopher Auguste Comte.

Born into the intellectual, social, and religious chaos of post-revolutionary France, Auguste Comte (1798-1857) proposed a systematic plan for achieving a new basis of order and progress—first in Europe and then throughout the world.  So many of his ideas have infiltrated late-modern civilization that he is rightly seen as a secret ruler of our age. Uncovering his subterranean influence helps people of faith see more clearly the nature of our contemporary battle.
Part of the Murphy Institute “The Common Good” event series.
