Montaigne, Libertarian?

August 14, 2008 by

Murray Rothbard praised Étienne de la Boétie’s Discourse of Voluntary Servitude as one of the greatest libertarian works of all time. But did La Boétie actually write it? Some recent research indicates that it Montaigne might be the real author.

No. Everyone knows this book was written by Edward de Vere, 17th Earl of Oxford!!!

@yassin, here it is. With the wrong author at the top, of course.

Montaigne is generally seen as Skeptical/Pluralistic Conservative, which mindset is fairly close to Libertarianism. Michael Oakeshott and John Kekes have praised him a lot.
