This book offers a distinctive treatment of Hayek's ideas, as a "research programme". It presents a detailed account of aspects of Hayek's intellectual development and of problems that arise within his work, and then offers some broad suggestions as to ways in which the programme initiated in his work might be developed further.

"In Shearmur, Hayke has found an intellectual biographer who can rise to the task of following Hayek across his many fields of inquiry. Shearmur is as adept as Hayek in moving from economics, to history, to politics, and beyond... Well-researched, thoughtful, and comprehensive in scope, Shearmur's book provides a useful starting point for future scholars seeking to understand Hayek, his work, and his influence.
