Beyond positivism : economic methodology in the twentieth century by Bruce Caldwell( Book )

12 editions published between 1982 and 2014 in English and Japanese and held by 866 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is distinguished by the breadth and depth of its perspective and by an exemplary clarity of exposition in dealing with difficult ideas in the philosophy of science and economics. Overall this book is a must for economists who are interested in improving their understanding of their discipline. This is an important book which if read individually or along with other recent contributions to the methodological literature in economics may well change the say in which economists view their discipline and may lead to greater criticism within the neoclassical paradigm and a greater tolerance for other paradigms
Hayek's challenge : an intellectual biography of F.A. Hayek by Bruce Caldwell( Book )

24 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 699 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher description: Friedrich A. Hayek is regarded as one of the preeminent economic theorists of the twentieth century, as much for his work outside of economics as for his work within it. During a career spanning several decades, he made contributions in fields as diverse as psychology, political philosophy, the history of ideas, and the methodology of the social sciences. Bruce Caldwell--editor of The Collected Works of F.A. Hayek--understands Hayek's thought like few others, and with this book he offers us the first full intellectual biography of this pivotal social theorist. Caldwell begins by providing the necessary background for understanding Hayek's thought, tracing the emergence, in fin-de-siecle Vienna, of the Austrian school of economics--a distinctive analysis forged in the midst of contending schools of thought. In the second part of the book, Caldwell follows the path by which Hayek, beginning from the standard Austrian assumptions, gradually developed his unique perspective on not only economics but a broad range of social phenomena. In the third part, Caldwell offers both an assessment of Hayek's arguments and, in an epilogue, an insightful estimation of how Hayek's insights can help us to clarify and reexamine changes in the field of economics during the twentieth century. As Hayek's ideas matured, he became increasingly critical of developments within mainstream economics: his works grew increasingly contrarian and evolved in striking--and sometimes seemingly contradictory--ways. Caldwell is ideally suited to explain the complex evolution of Hayek's thought, and his analysis here is nothing short of brilliant, impressively situating Hayek in a broader intellectual context, unpacking the often difficult turns in his thinking, and showing how his economic ideas came to inform his ideas on the other social sciences

23 editions published between 1988 and 2014 in English and held by 410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1931, when the young F. A. Hayek challenged the economic theories of John Maynard Keynes, sixteen years his senior, and one of the world's leading economists, he sparked a spirited debate that would influence economic policy in democratic countries for decades. Their extensive exchange lasted until Keynes's death in 1946, and is reprinted in its entirety in this latest volume of The Collected Works of F. A. Hayek. --

22 editions published between 1988 and 2014 in English and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout the twentieth century socialism and war were intimately connected. The unprecedented upheavals wrought by the two world wars and the Great Depression provided both opportunity and impetus for a variety of socialist experiments.

Austrian economics : tensions and new directions by Warren J Samuels( Book )

4 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume considers what the future might hold for the Austrian tradition of economics. This includes the areas that seem most promising for new research. Instead of criticizing other positions from the standpoint of Austrian analysis, the book turns a critical eye on the Austrian program itself -- where its weak points are, and how important they are in an overall assessment of the Austrian position. The book successfully criticizes many topics related to the Austrian school of thought. Starting with the historical and methodological issues, it examines subjectivism, market coordination, institutions, political economy and evolutionary theory. It concludes with an Afterword by Mario Rizzo and Larry White, which both appraises the contents and assesses the approaches propounded in the volume

The market and other orders by Friedrich A. von Hayek( Book )

11 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In addition to his groundbreaking contributions to pure economic theory, F.A. Hayek also closely examined the ways in which the knowledge of many individual market participants could culminate in an overall order of economic activity. His attempts to come to terms with the "knowledge problem" thread through his career and comprise the writings collected in the fifteenth volume of the University of Chicago Press's Collected Works of F.A. Hayek series. The Market and Other Orders brings together more than twenty works spanning almost forty years that consider this question. Consisting of speeches, essays, and lectures, including Hayek's 1974 Nobel lecture, "The Pretense of Knowledge," the works in this volume draw on a broad range of perspectives, including the philosophy of science, the physiology of the brain, legal theory, and political philosophy. Taking readers from Hayek's early development of the idea of spontaneous order in economics through his integration of this insight into political theory and other disciplines, the book culminates with Hayek's integration of his work on these topics into an overarching social theory that accounts for spontaneous order in the variety of complex systems that Hayek studied throughout his career. Edited by renowned Hayek scholar Bruce Caldwell, who also contributes a masterly introduction that provides biographical and historical context, The Market and Other Orders forms the definitive compilation of Hayek's work on spontaneous order
