The Social Mathematics of the Marquis de Condorcet Publication date : September 1, 1989
"In this year of the second century of the Great Revolution, the figure and destiny of Condorcet attracts attention and arouses much-deserved admiration. But the role that this kind and passionate man played as a political precursor is equally worthy of the interest of twentieth century man. It would be unjust to forget that he was also the under-recognized author of very modern ideas concerning a possible science of society." This new edition has been revised and corrected, but is nonetheless a classic.
