Contents of The Market and Other Orders

It will be the 15th volume of The Collected Works of F.A. Hayek, and will gather several items together, all concerning the theory of markets in a subject-related logic, respecting the publication order only within each part.

Here is the plan:

  • Editor’s Introduction
  • Chapter 1 – Prologue: Kinds of Rationalism (1964)
  • Part I – Development
    • Chapter 2 – Economics and Knowledge (1937)
    • Chapter 3 – Facts of the Social Sciences (1943)
    • Chapter 4 – The Use of Knowledge in Society (1945)
    • Chapter 5 – The Meaning of Competition (1946)
    • Chapter 6 – The Political Ideal of the Rule of Law (1955)
    • Chapter 7 – Degrees of Explanation (1955)
    • Chapter 8 – The Economy, Science and Politics (1962)
    • Chapter 9 – Rules, Perception and Intelligibility (1962)
  • Part II – Generalization
    • Chapter 10 – The Theory of Complex Phenomena (1964)
    • Chapter 11 – Notes on the Evolution of Systems of Rules of Conduct (1967)
    • Chapter 12 – The Results of Human Action But Not of Human Design (1967)
    • Chapter 13 – Competition as a Discovery Process (1968)
    • Chapter 14 – The Primacy of the Abstract (1969)
      • Appendix to Chapter 14 – Discussion of Primacy of Abstract
    • Chapter 15 – The Errors of Constructivism (1970)
    • Chapter 16 – Nature vs. Nurture Once Again (1971)
    • Chapter 17 – The Pretence of Knowledge (1975)

At this moment, I ignore totally when this volume will be published. If you’re in Aix-en-Provence on May 12, you will be able to ask it to Bruce Caldwell himself, since he’ll give a conference on Hayek at the University.
