La  décision de majorité

La décision de majorité

Majority décisions appear to be natu-ral ways of doing things. Under analysis, this mode of collective choice appears extremely complex ; thus, when the aggregation ofindi-vidual préférences produces the circular si­tuation ftrst described by Condorcet, or when one must evaluate ail the ways in which the varions éléments of a majority décision can be structurée. We must also ask, in the light of political theory, if majority décisions do reflect a collective will capable of translating choices into history.
