Social Analysis of Three Early 19th Century French Liberals: Say, Comte, and Dunoyer

  • The Journal of Libertarian Studies

The topic of this paper is the class theory of Jean-Baptiste Say (1767-1832). Charles Comte (1782-1838) and Charles Dunoyer (1786-1862). However, in order to be fully accurate, this title should be qualified in several respects. First, the thinking of these men can not be examined in complete isolation, divorced from traditional liberal ideas, the works of their contemporaries and the intellectual currents of the day. Secondly, their class theories strictly speaking cannot be separated from what we might now consider the separate specializations of economics, history and political theory. This is the nature of the times as well as in the nature of the subject.
