Abstract

This chapter explores Hayek’s two epistemologies; that of economics and science in general. We track how Hayek’s early work on economics epistemology ultimately evolved to his epistemology of sciences in general. In particular, we explore Hayek’s insights on knowledge and economic coordination and its connection to his theory of complex phenomena.

Keywords: Hayek, epistemology, knowledge problem, complex phenomena
