In existographies, Maurice Hauriou (99-26 BE) (1856-1929 ACM) (SN:20) (CR:24) (LH:3) (TL:27) was a French law professor, and thermodynamics based social philosopher, noted for []


In 1898, Hauriou, in his Lessons on Social Movement, explained large scale social movements, i.e. gross aspects of business, social events, states of a society, etc., in terms of pure thermodynamics, using Carnot efficiency, Mayer's conservation of energy.[1]


Quotes | By

The following are quotes:

“There is need to establish a new science, one that compares the mechanics of social science and social movement with thermodynamics. In doing so, the human mind obeys the feeling that he has the web link and continuity of natural phenomena. It will be then possible to determine more accurately the specific content of this new science and to classify the essential elements, which will then serve as a touchstone of human theories.”
— Maurice Hauriou (1898), Lessons on Social Movement (pg. #)[2]
“It is necessary to study thermodynamics. The increase in entropy is a sign that it exists in the ‘conduct’ of the universe, conduct that is carried out by application of the organic representative and it is manifested by the creation of static and the ‘increase of law’, it aims to free items. I ventured to see in thermodynamics ‘the science of behavior of physical movements’ and I made for the moral sciences or sciences of the conduct of social movements.”

“If we understand that the connections we have made are not just not been pointless, but rather are the curious road to the explanation of social movement, characterized by gross business men or events, be transformed into its representation mental aspects also curious to see the representative energies, in turn, is converted back into social movement organizations and institutions. These transformations are comparable to those of motion into heat and heat into motion [mechanical equivalent of heat]. We have applied in the social principle of the impossibility of perpetual motion, the principle of Mayer became representative of the equivalence principles of heat engines, including that of the Carnot maximum efficiency. We have not yet exhausted the analogies that thermodynamics should furnish. It remains to use the principle of Clausius or the increase of entropy, the principle is formulated thus: ‘In the transformation of a closed system, there is a quantity that is constantly increasing, entropy, and when the largest possible system value occurs, the transformations stop.’ This principle will provide extraordinary light on the conduct and the creation of a static society, commonly seen in the creation of situations of state. We see that this is what working energies representative.”
