Celebrating The BiCentennial of the Birth of
Gustave de Molinari (1819-1912)

The Founding Father of the Anarcho-Capitalist Tradition

[Commemorating the Bicentennial of his birth on 3 March 1819 in Liège.
He died at 92 years of age on 28 January, 1912 in Adinkerke, Belgium]




In 2012, the 100th anniversary of the death of Gustave de Moliari, I complied an anthology of his key writings on the state which consisted of 13 items in facsimile format only [listed here]. In 2019, the bicentennial year of his birth, with the cooperation of the Institut Coppet in Paris, I will publish a larger anthology of his key writings both as a book and in HTML. It will consist of a lengthy biographical introduction to his writings, introductions to 24 of his key works, and the most comprehensive bibliography of his very numerous writings to date.

I would also like to note that 2019 is the 40th anniversary of the completion of my undergraduate honours thesis on Molinari which I wrote while at Macquarie University, Sydney.

I had hoped that the translation of Les Soirées de la rue Saint-Lazare I have been editing for many years would have been available in 2019, but unfortunately this cannot be. A near final draft has been online for several years here, and contains much material on his life and thought as well.
