This book is the first fruits of the Seminar on the Sociology of Pareto which Lawrence J. Henderson has conducted at Harvard for the last two years. Nearly everything it says which is not Pareto's and which is of any importance we have parroted from him. This is a debt which we can never hope to acknowledge adequately. We also thank Bernard De Voto, who has done so much to bring Pareto to the attention of American readers, for criticizing the manuscript. Elton Mayo, too, we thank for clarifying our thinking in many directions. Finally, we are grateful to Professor Alfred North Whitehead, and to Professor Kirsopp Lake, for allowing us to quote at length from their books.
