Self referential condorcet method[edit source]
The article "One which always elects the pairwise champion if such exists", the thing is the parwise competition is made with first part the post (or something similar to approval system if you allow equal rankings).
Couldn't you have some sort of self referential Condorcet method, where you check if someone won the pairwise competition, using the voting method you are testing to check if it's a condorcet method or not? Range voting as some example would pass this self referential condorcet method (also range vote is better than first past the post even with just two candidates).
