37 The relationship is thus fixed: progress is only compatible with non-history, just as history is exclusively bound to decline. It is precisely here that the Darwinian theory of transformism, although clearly in opposition, is siphoned into and subordinated to the ancient theory of degeneration, which was partially adopted even by Hegel. While transformism does not envisage the necessary character of decline - it even presupposes, in principle, a progres­ sion from simple to complex - Schleicher translates it into Hegel­ ian terms that reverse the original direction.

This does not mean, however, that the various languages - like the various races, for that matter - should be located on the same plane. The same logical inconsis­ tency, only heightened, is to be found in Schleicher: all languages degenerate, but some do so more or less slowly than others, because they have an embryonic force that protects them from what is, in any case, an inevitable decline. ”44 The thinker that Chavée is explicitly alluding to with these phrases is Ernest Renan. 45 It also allowed him to rivet the relation­ ship between languages - and therefore between races - to a comparative framework that did not move it upwards or down­ wards.

The basic premise that governs the whole machinery of the human sciences is the need for any disciplinary language to be able to progress and gain complexity only by going beyond its original boundaries, in order to seek outside itself tools that are able to validate their own epistemic status. Following this line of reasoning, knowledge of life is, for Comte, the exteriority inside of which political science, even before seeking answers, must seek the questions that cannot be framed in its own vocabulary.
