Chapter Summary

A revival of Comtean studies has recently taken place. The public has now regained access to most of Comte's writings and a wealth of commentaries bearing on almost all the aspects of his thought have been published in the past few years. This appendix provides a (non-exhaustive) overview of this historiographic trend. It takes as its chronological starting point the publication of Mary Pickering's Auguste Comte. The benefit of approaching Comte's philosophy via its treatment of sexual equality is that Comte had addressed the problem in a correspondence with another luminary of the nineteenth century, namely John Stuart Mill.

Keywords: Comtean studies; John Stuart Mill; sexual equality
