One of the fascinating aspects of this story is that another special case of Arrow's theorem, called the paradox of voting, had been discovered in the 18th century by a French mathematician and philosopher, the Marquis de Condorcet
, and again in the 19th century by mathematician Charles Dodgson (better known by his literary nom de plume, Lewis Caroll), and independently once again by economist Duncan Black a bit before Arrow developed his theorem.
The rise of equal rights for women, Marquis de Condorcet

Dejando de lado que este desarrollo gana terreno al proposito del libro, el recorrido es sugerente y acertado, animando entre lineas al lector a bucear tambien entre las obras de Francois Poulain de la Barre (1647-1723), Mary Wollstonecraft (1759-1797), Marie Jean Antoine Nicolas de Caritat, marquis de Condorcet
(1743-1794), Simone de Beauvoir (1908-1986) y otros tantos y tantas.
I want now to sketch out the logical postulates entailed by the concept of a scientifically planned and administered society--a technocracy--and to consider how this logic directs the social philosophy of one of the first and most fascinating of the proto-technocrats, the Marquis de Condorcet
Prior to these profiles, he also discusses the Marquis de Condorcet
and Auguste Comte in the context of the emergence of modern social science.
