I have always thought that this statue of Auguste Comte (1798-1857) could not have been better placed than where it is at Place de la Sorbonne. That university, of course, is one of the world's best. What a perfect position for a tribute to the founder of sociology, the philosophy of positivism and the religion of humanism.

Crafted by Jean-Antoine Injalbert in 1902, the work features a bust of Comte on a high pedestal with two allegorical figures below on a broad pedestal. The woman standing on the left represents humanism and the man sitting on the right portrays philosophy.

It is quite easy to find this statue. I was walking up Boulevard St-Michel toward the Luxembourg Garden when I turned into Place de la Sorbonne. The statue is almost immediately on the left.
