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:

Frederick Bastiat was a French Philosopher & Political Economist of the mid-1800s, who was influenced by such market oriented thinkers as Adam Smith. His background in business, academia, and politics provided a unique perspective on what really works to improve the human condition - and to him, it wasn't more government.
