Congreve Richard

Congreve, Richard, Positivist thinker, was one of Dr. Arnold's pupils at Rugby, where he subsequently became assistant-master. In 1855 appeared his well-known edition of Aristotle's Politics, and in 1857 his pamphlets on Gibraltar and India, in which he denounced the British Empire in the East. Resigning the fellowship that he held at Wadham College, Oxford, he openly adopted the Positivist system about this time. Among his other writings are Elizabeth of England, Our Foreign Policy, and Human Catholicism.
