Abstract

This article assesses how the dynamic of Pareto's social equilibrium is based on the principle of rupture of the Machiavellian moment. The article sets out this principle in terms of equilibrium between virtù and fortuna then assesses the study of the transposition of Pareto's social equilibrium dynamic. It then assesses whether this analysis makes it possible to create a synthesis of the results that Pareto established in economics and sociology. Following the assessment of the method of the successive approximations used by Pareto, we show that the principle of rupture of the Machiavellian moment involves taking into consideration that the explanations of the social equilibrium dynamics rests on a law of trends and not on a law of what is always true. This problem leads to calling the synthesis of Pareto's results into question.
