Pierre-Joseph Proudhon Quotes

Pierre-Joseph Proudhon (1809 – 1865) was a French politician and philosopher. He grew up in poor surroundings, working in a tavern and as an agricultural laborer. His education was provided by his mother and he spent much of his time outdoors in the countryside. In 1827 he began apprenticing at a printing house, later becoming certified as a journeyman compositor. An unsuccessful printing business venture in 1838 led him to devote himself to scholarly pursuits, and in 1840 he published his first book, What is Property?
