  • Abstract: This paper examines the use of the hunting, pasturage, agriculture and commerce sequence in the writings of Turgot, Steuart and Smith. We found explanations which were identical in the pre-eminence of the productive forces and economic organisation, despite that fact, these theories are significantly different. This paper presents three distinct dynamic principles in their four-stage theory, and the conditions for the movement from the agricultural stage to commercial society do not coincide.
