Editorial Preface HAYEKIAN PERSPECTIVES Here comes the second part of the special issue of the Journal des Economistes et des Etudes Humaines published to honor the hundredth birthday of Friedrich August von Hayek. While the first part offered insights into Hayek's scientific Odyssey, the following articles are more explorations either of the inner logic of Hayekianism or of some potential research avenues opened up by Hayek's works. Even though the intellectual tributes are of different persuasions, some of them amounting to a recasting of Hayekian themes, they are all without any exception part of the progressive research program Hayek has bequeathed to subsequent generations of social scientists. Much controversy surrounds Hayek's writings across several domains such as law, politics, culture, history, economics and philosophy. Therefore, it is not surprising that beyond the variety of interpretations, the theoretical implications may themselves be so various. The articles hereafter certainly echo the same subjects and general outlines as those that were dealt with in the previous part. However, the perspectives they reveal not only lay stress on the potential unity of Hayek's work -- a rather controversial point -- but also reveal a common thread originating from the "knowledge problem" and the themes http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal des Économistes et des Études Humaines de Gruyter

Abstract

HAYEKIAN PERSPECTIVES Here comes the second part of the special issue of the Journal des Economistes et des Etudes Humaines published to honor the hundredth birthday of Friedrich August von Hayek. While the first part offered insights into Hayek's scientific Odyssey, the following articles are more explorations either of the inner logic of Hayekianism or of some potential research avenues opened up by Hayek's works. Even though the intellectual tributes are of different persuasions, some of them amounting to a recasting of Hayekian themes, they are all without any exception part of the progressive research program Hayek has bequeathed to subsequent generations of social scientists. Much controversy surrounds Hayek's writings across several domains such as law, politics, culture, history, economics and philosophy. Therefore, it is not surprising that beyond the variety of interpretations, the theoretical implications may themselves be so various. The articles hereafter certainly echo the same subjects and general outlines as those that were dealt with in the previous part. However, the perspectives they reveal not only lay stress on the potential unity of Hayek's work -- a rather controversial point -- but also reveal a common thread originating from the "knowledge problem" and the themes
