Nicolas de Condorcet on Perfection - Dictionary of Arguments

Habermas III 211
Perfection/Condorcet/Habermas: Condorcet reinterprets the concept of perfection according to the pattern of scientific progress. Perfection no longer means, as in the Aristotelian tradition, the realization of a telos inherent in the nature of things, but a process of perfection that is directed but not teleologically limited in advance. Perfection is interpreted as progress. (1)
