Overview

Not available since the 1980s, this up-dated edition by the leading political philosopher, John Gray, outlines his new position on Hayek. In a substantial new chapter, Gray assesses how far the historical development of the last ten years can be deployed in a critique of Hayek's thought. His reassessment is not only a provoking study of a classical philosopher. It is also a timely contribution to the debate over the future of conservatism, as Gray argues that Hayekian liberalism - 'the most well-articulated political theory of the new right' - is flawed.

Classical Liberalism lost a good mind when John Gray turned conservative. The great thing about Gray's analysis- both for those familiar Hayek and those seeking introduction- is that it ties together an extraordinarily interdisciplinary body of thought. Most books will focus on either Hayek's economic contributions, or his political philosophy. Gray treats these, as well as Hayek's lesser known work in cognitive psychology and scientific methodology, displaying the organic unity of Hayek's thought. Excellent stuff.
