Informations and abstract

Keywords: Vilfredo Pareto; Elite Theory; Fascism; Talcott Parsons; Social Equilibrium.

The article analyzes the reasons of the American scholars' interest in Pareto's sociological thought, during the 1920s and 1930s. It studies the «Pareto Vogue» in three aspects: the identification of its phases, the analysis of the main themes and the reconstruction of the interesting story of the «Pareto Circle» of Harvard University. In this way, the article aims to demonstrate the importance that Mind and Society had in the American scientific and political context.
