9781619490338: The Law

A response to and expansion upon John Locke’s Second Treatise of Government, Frederic Bastiat’s The Law is an exploration of the economic implications of freedom. Deeply concerned with the distinction between legality and legitimacy, Bastiat analyzes both concepts in his examination of the law’s rightful role in society. Bastiat examines various traits and tendencies of government and the inherent dangers of allowing the government to legalize suppression of individual rights. The Law proposes that legal intervention be limited by the concept of justice alone. Bastiat’s perspectives on the harnessing of government have continued to influence social, economic, and political philosophy.

About the Author:

Frederic Bastiat was born in Bayonne, Aquitaine, France. When he was nine years old, he was orphaned and became a ward of his father's parents. At age seventeen he left school to become more involved with his family's business as an exporter. Economist Thomas DiLorenzo suggests that this family business experience was crucial to Bastiat's later work because it allowed young Frédéric to acquire first-hand knowledge of some of the effects of trade regulations on the market. Sheldon Richman notes that "he came of age during the Napoleonic wars, with their extensive government intervention in economic affairs." When Bastiat was twenty-five, his grandfather and benefactor died, leaving the young man the family estate and providing him with the means to further his own theoretical inquiries. His areas of intellectual interest were diverse, including "philosophy, history, politics, religion, travel, poetry, political economy, [and] biography." His public career as an economist began only in 1844, and was cut short by his untimely death in 1850. Bastiat had contracted tuberculosis, probably during his tours throughout France to promote his ideas, and that illness eventually prevented him from making further speeches (particularly at the legislative assembly to which he was elected in 1848 and 1849) and took his life. Bastiat died in Rome on 24 December 1850.
