You might want to include Olympe De Gouges. This was her view and she, Condorcet, and De Grouchy were all very close intellectually.

Eric Schliesser

Hi Aaron, yes, I teach De Gouges alongside Condorcet (and Wollstonecraft). But where do you see her as claiming that reason is an open-ended, transformative historical process (driven by emancipation)? (She has some nice stuff on adaptive preferences that I use.)

I meant what Condorcet says in the actual quote.
