Antoine Louis Claude Destutt de Tracy (20 July 1754–9 March 1836), a French philosopher and economist, is worthy of attention as a contributor to French liberal thought in the tradition of Condillac. Tracy's deductive methodology, his liberal approach to governmental affairs, and his subjectivism qualify him as a proto-Austrian economist who enjoyed considerable influence not only in France but also around the world. He had also influence on American Jeffersonian thought.
