For Hayek, spontaneous order - the emergence of complex order as the unintended consequence of individual actions that have no such end in view - is both the origin of the Great Society and its underlying principle. These sometimes critical essays assess Hayek's position and argue that his work can inform contemporary social and political dilemmas.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This is a great introduction to the thought of Friedrich Hayek. Collections of essays on a single author are rarely this good. Hayek is measured both against his greatest predecessors (David Hume, Adam Smith) and against developments going on now in the sciences of biology, economics, and political theory. I believe that any reader - whatever his previous exposure to Hayek - will come away with a better understanding of both the significance of Hayek s writings and the problems he left unresolved."

- John W. Danford, Professor of Political Science, Loyola University Chicago

"This collection is a welcome contribution to the growing scholarly interest in the legacy of F.A. Hayek. It includes a critical assessment of Hayek's key ideas of Spontaneous Order and the Great Society. Focusing on the application of Spontaneous Order across the social sciences, while noting the historical influences on Hayek's thought, Hunt and McNamara have assembled a collection of accomplished essays that engage with Spontaneous Order's place in Liberal and Conservative theory. 'Liberalism, Conservatism, and Hayek's Idea of Spontaneous Order' is an important addition to the literature on Hayek's intellectual legacy."

- Dr. Craig Smith, Professor of Politics, University of Glasgow, United Kingdom

"A largely excellent collection of essays that show the richness and complexity of Hayek's thought. It contains several effective defenses of both the liberal and the conservative defenses of Hayek, and scholars interested in those issues will find much to chew on here. Historians of economics and methodologists will find it of value as well."

- Research in the History of Economic Thought and Methodology, Vol. 28-A, Steven Horwitz
