Social choice theory and the “Centre de Mathématique Sociale”: some historical notes
AbstractIn this paper we describe some research directions in social choice and aggregation theory led at the âCentre de MathÃ©matique Socialeâ since the fifties. We begin by presenting some institutional aspects concerning this EHESS center. Then we sketch a thematic history by considering the following questions about the "effet Condorcet" (âvoting paradoxâ): What is it? How is it overcome? Why does it occur? These questions were tackled in Guilbaud's 1952 paper (Les thÃ©ories de l'intÃ©rÃªt gÃ©nÃ©ral et le problÃ¨me logique de l'agrÃ©gation) which will be our leading clue for our inquiry. The conclusion outline some more recent developments researches linked to these questions.
