Printing and the Mind of Man 246, "Considered to be Condorcet's most original and most important work. In it he divided history into ten epochs, the first nine dealing with history up to the time in which he himself lived, whereas the tenth is his prophetic view of the future. It is the most original part of the book in which Condorcet forecasts among others the future moral, intellectual and physical improvement of man." Evans 30257
