The influence of the West political thought on the Polish physiocratism
By physiocratism I mean an economic and political doctrine invented by a French physician, François Quesnay (1694–1774). He found soon many followers, also in the Polish-Lituanian Commonwealth. In my paper I analyse writings of six of them: Joachim Litawor Chreptowicz (1729–1812), Antoni Popławski (in fact Jacek Popławski, 1739–1799), Hugo Kołłątaj (1750–1812), Hieronim Stroynowski (1752–1815), Stanisław Staszic (1755–1826), Jan Sebatian Dembowski (1762–ca. 1830). I proof that following Western political ideas had impact on their content: physiocratism, modern natural law theories, the Enlightment constutionalism.
