  1. A philosophical trend that insists that all questions (including social and ideological ones) can be solved by means of natural science. Classical positivism was created in the 19th century by the French philosopher Auguste Comte (1798-1857). The most profound critique of many of the attitudes characteristic of positivism was offered in the twentieth century by W. Quine (1908-2000).

  2. positivism emerged as an alternative to the traditional view of being that prevails in the society of Christian civilization. They say that life on earth is vanity of vanities and punishment, and that only after the grave it will be good ( and then not for everyone, but only for the righteous)..And this world is dominated by sin, the devil and evil..It is on this paradigm that positivism emerged as a belief in “this” life.
