    Condorcet was elected to the French Academy in , an achievement that was a testament both to his reputation as a thinker and to the support D'Alembert and Voltaire gave to their young friend. Condorcet’s Sketch for an Historical Picture of the Progress of the Human Mind was written in the last few months of his life when on the run, having been condemned to death in the wake of the French Revolution. In hiding as he was, and in fear of his life, he found himself, rather than writing another polemic, or trying to justify his actions, deciding to devote the time left to him to.

      For other assessments of Condorcet as a forerunner of Saint-Simon and Comte, see F. A. Hayek, The Counter-Revolution of Science: Studies in the Abuse of Reason, 2nd ed. (Indianapolis: Liberty Press, ), ; and Eric Voegelin, From Enlightenment to Revolution (Durham, NC: Duke University Press, ),   In this video, we practice finding the Condorcet winner of an election, and explain why sometimes there is no winner.
