Pierre-Joseph Proud'hon (1809-1865) was one of the most vigorous French writers of the day. A self-educated man, he had given himself up to the study of theoretical social subjects. He maintained that labor was a major driving force of the economy and developed a philosophy based on social justice. He coined the phrase 'property is theft'.
