Life and work

Edmond Demolins was born in 1852 in Marseille . He became a disciple of Pierre Guillaume Frederic le Play . He formed a small group of students Paul de Rousiers that puts in the Play ‘s salon every Monday in the 1870s. [1] The Program of Government and Social Organization Based on Comparative Observation of the Various Peoples (1881) was a collective work by members of the group with a preface by Le Play. [2] Demolines edited the bi-monthly Social Reform . [2] In 1885, three years after the death of Le Play, Henri de Tourville and Demolins split from the movement and founded a new journal,Social science . They brought with them a few members of Rousiers and Robert Pinot (1862-1926), future director of the Social Museum and Secretary-General of the Forges Committee . This small group is a true research team. [3]
