Brocker I 101
Terminology/Pareto: To explain human actions that affect the shaping of society, Pareto adopted constant elements that he isolated from traditional political and philosophical narratives. These he called "residuals". ((s) See Symbols/Cassirer).
Residuals: Pareto distinguished more than 50 residuals, including
Brocker I 102
the urge to combine, the need to preserve, the need for expression, sociality, the integrity of individuals and their families, sexuality.
VsPareto: the taxonomy appears arbitrary and opaque in some places (cf. Bach 2004, 2323-239)(1). Most of the residuals can be assigned to magical and religious structures: Shamanism, fetishism, practices of asceticism, divination, sacrificial rituals, satanic cults, ritual dances, purification rites, death cults, funeral ceremonies and more similar phenomena.
Broker I 104
Derivations/Pareto: (also "derivatives") is how Pareto calls argumentation practices and ways of thinking that result from the residuals and can influence everyday practice in the form of misconceptions and illusionary evidence.(2)
