An abridgement of the author's principal contribution to sociology

First abridged edition of the Italian economist's principal contribution to sociology, Trattato di sociologia generale, which was originally published in 1916 and first translated into English in 1935 as The Mind and Society. This edition appeared as part of Gaspero Barbèra's series of key economics textbooks, "Manuali Barbera di scienze giuridiche sociali e politiche"; Barbèra had previously championed authors such as Bartolomeo Trinci and Carlo Fontanelli.

"The most important point in the Trattato di sociologia generale is its study of inductive inferences, of the legomenon, which Pareto wanted to account for in terms of the logic of the senses. This book provides notable examples of Pareto's research into ideologies, his study of non-demonstrative reasonings, and on the operations which produce practical and everyday discussions. Pareto intuitively believed that derivations are mechanisms regulating the interactions between individuals and groups, raising conflicts to a verbal level, producing situations and even social reality itself" (The New Palgrave III, p. 803).
