ABSTRACT
The article focuses on visionary mining engineer Michel Chevalier and the historiographic interpretation of his writings and ideas. It reveals the extent to which Chevalier's works and vigorous political activism had an impact on his time and at the present times. A comparison of his works about free trade to the writings of several liberals such as Adolphe Blanqui, Charles Dunoyer, and Joseph Garnier is also offered. An overview of Chevalier's life and status during the Second Empire is presented.
