Nicholas de Condorcet

a.k.a. Marie Jean Antoine Nicholas de Caritat, Marquis de Condorcet

Author Code: FNDC

Born: Sep. 17, 1743 - Ribemont, Aisne, France

Died: Mar. 28, 1794 - Bourg-la-Reine, France

Educated at the Jesuit College at Reims and the College de Navarre in Paris, Condorcet excelled in mathematics and published his his first work on integral calculus in 1765. In 1769, he was elected to the French Royal Academy of Sciences. He became good friends with Jacques Turgot, an economist who became Condorcet's mentor. In 1774, Condorcet was appointed Inspector General of the Monnaie de Paris by Turgot and began concentrating his efforts on more political matters. He was a staunch supporter of human rights, especially with regard to women and blacks and in 1781 published Reflections on Negro Slavery, which put forth his abolitionist views. In 1785, he published Essay on the Application of Analysis to the Probability of Majority Decisions, an important work in the field of group psychology and probability, which espoused his method for simulating pair-wise elections and including his famous jury-theorem. During the Revolution, Condorcet was elected as a representative to the Assembly for Paris, eventually becoming its secretary. When the Assembly was replaced by the National Convention, Condorcet eventually fell into disfavour with Robespierre and the Montagnards and in 1793 a warrant was issued for his arrest. On the run for many months, he was finally apprehended in 1794 and sent to prison. He died within a few days in his cell under mysterious circumstances. Condorcet was one of French Enlightenment's most famous authors and his other works include Vi de Voltaire (1789), For the Admission to the Rights of Citizenship for Women (1790) and Outlines for an Historical View of the Progress of the Human Spirit (1795 Posthumous).
