Carlo Lottieri (born November 6, 1960) is an Italian free-market anarchist philosopher.



He studied philosophy in Genoa and sociology at the Institut Universitaire d’Etudes Européennes at the University of Geneva and in Paris, where he obtained a D.E.A. and a Ph.D. at the Paris-Sorbonne University (Paris IV). His thesis was written under the direction of Raymond Boudon and it was on Idéologie et science dans la sociologie politique de Gaetano Mosca. In 1989 he received a Claude Lambe Fellowship from the Institute for Humane Studies in Fairfax, Virginia, a fellowship from the European Council in 1990 and in 1991 another one from the MURST, the Italian Ministry of Universities, Scientific and Technological Research.

After some years of cooperation with Vaclav Belohradsky, the chair of Political Sociology at the University of Trieste, in 1999 he became Assistant Researcher in Political Philosophy at the University of Siena. He taught Sociology and Economics at the ISC (Istituto Superiore di Comunicazione) of Milan between 1997 and 1999.

He has been a member of the faculty of the Summer Seminars by Institute for Economic Studies in Gummersbach and Lauenberg (Germany), Yundola (Bulgaria), Aix-en-Provence (France), Leuven (Belgium), Mehdia (Morocco) and Grand Bassam (Ivory Coast).

In 2003 he became Assistant Professor of Philosophy of Law at the University of Siena.

He has been Editorial Director of the journal Federalismo & Libertà (Milan) and with Luigi Marco Bassani and Mauro Maldonato he edited a books collection about the history of political ideas (Sfere della libertà, Guida publisher). Now he is one of the editors of a books collection about political philosophy and free-market economy (Diritto, Mercato, Libertà, IBL libri publisher). He published papers in many journals: Telos, Journal of Libertarian Studies, L'Année Sociologique and others.

He edited an anthology of writings by Bruno Leoni: Law, Liberty and the Competitive Market (with a Preface by Richard A. Epstein), New Brunswick NJ, Transaction, 2008.

He is director of the Political Theory department of the Bruno Leoni Institute, a libertarian think-tank based in Turin and Adjunct Faculty member of the Ludwig von Mises Institute.


His main studies concern libertarian political philosophy (Murray Rothbard, Robert Nozick and Hans-Hermann Hoppe), elitism in the constitution of the state and policial classes (Vilfredo Pareto and Gaetano Mosca), evolutionary theory of law (Bruno Leoni and Friedrich von Hayek), communitarianism and the contemporary leanings of federal thought.
