Recent years have witnessed a remarkable revival in Hayek's reputation as an economist, a political philosopher, and an intellectual historian. "Hayek, Coordination and Evolution" shows why this revival has taken place by demonstrating the continuing relevance and vitality of Hayek's ideas. Internationally renowned scholars representing both the left and the right critically assess Hayek's contribution to economics, political philosophy, legal theory, cognitive psychology, and the history of ideas. Challenging mainstream traditions in all these fields, this controversial work provides a unique analysis of the ways that Hayek's legacy can help to solve problems in the contemporary social sciences and philosophy.

"Superbly conceived and edited...the volume contains a feast of controversial and provocative ideas, theses, interpretations and challenges for the Hayek student. No reviewer could, in the space available, possibly do justice to the richnes of this multi-faceted volume." -"Southern Economic Journal
