Love, Order, and Progress by Michel Bourdeau

Love, Order, and Progress: The Science, Philosophy, and Politics of Auguste Comte by Michel Bourdeau
Requirements: .PDF reader, 1.6 MB
Overview: Auguste Comte’s doctrine of positivism was both a philosophy of science and a political philosophy designed to organize a new, secular, stable society based on positive or scientific, ideas, rather than the theological dogmas and metaphysical speculations associated with the ancien regime. This volume offers the most comprehensive English-language overview of Auguste Comte’s philosophy, the relation of his work to the sciences of his day, and the extensive, continuing impact of his thinking on philosophy and especially secular political movements in Europe, Latin America, and Asia. Contributors consider Comte’s reasons for establishing a Religion of Humanity as well as his views on domestic life and the arts in his positivist utopia. The volume further details Comte’s attempt to apply his "positive method," first to social science and then to politics and morality, thereby defending the continuity of his career while also critically examining the limits of his approach.

Order without Design by Alain Bertaud

Order without Design: How Markets Shape Cities by Alain Bertaud
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 52.8 MB
Overview: An argument that operational urban planning can be improved by the application of the tools of urban economics to the design of regulations and infrastructure.

Urban planning is a craft learned through practice. Planners make rapid decisions that have an immediate impact on the ground-the width of streets, the minimum size of land parcels, the heights of buildings. The language they use to describe their objectives is qualitative-"sustainable," "livable," "resilient"-often with no link to measurable outcomes. Urban economics, on the other hand, is a quantitative science, based on theories, models, and empirical evidence largely developed in academic settings. In this book, the eminent urban planner Alain Bertaud argues that applying the theories of urban economics to the practice of urban planning would greatly improve both the productivity of cities and the welfare of urban citizens.
