Reviews

"This interdisciplinary collection of essays ranges widely across Hayek's life and ideas, yielding valuable new insights about his moral theory, the origins of his social philosophy, and his influence on political reforms in the final decades of the twentieth century." - Angus Burgin, Professor of History, Johns Hopkins University, USA

"Anyone unfamiliar with F.A. Hayek may wonder why this volume enjoys a place in a series dedicated to the study of leadership. Serious students of leadership should look again. To paraphrase Hayek, it is the curious task of leaders to recognize how little they really know about the complex social processes others may imagine they control. Emphasizing the nature of knowledge systems in social processes, this volume fills a critical gap in leadership studies." - Emily Chamlee-Wright, Provost and Dean of the College, Washington College, USA

"This collection expands upon David Levy's half century of considering the relation of Mandeville and Smith to F. A. Hayek, and Peart's long engagement with Mill and Hayek. The several authors engage the contributions of Hayek, such as to knowledge, and to evolutionary thought. Students of Hayek will discover new facets of his sources and thinking." - Leonard P. Liggio, Professor, Atlas Economic Research Foundation

"This collection makes a significant contribution to the crowded field of Hayek scholarship. The essays are original and make use of archival materials, and they manage to avoid the overploughed areas in that field. Peart and Levy have assembled a volume that will add substantially to our understanding of Hayek's work, its historical context, and its contemporary relevance." - Steve Horwitz, Charles A. Dana Professor of Economics, St. Lawrence University, USA
