■Contents

From the book wrapper:
"Bloom the flower of sociability"
"Can't we hope to live in the cycle of humble desire anymore?"
"What is the joy of labor? It is to be together, work together, and let the flower of sociability bloom. In order to do so, the multiplication of leisure and uncountable gregarious associations are inevitable. This book thoroughly studies Tarde's "theory of wealth and the art of government based on desire and belief".
