Friedrich Hayek on Social Evolution and the Origins of Tradition

11/04/2011

Libertarianism.org has released this exclusive video from November 22, 1983 of F. A. Hayek discussing the evolution of morality and social norms, arguing that they result from unplanned, emergent processes. He contrasts this conclusion with other philosophical accounts of law and morality.

 

A short clip from a rare Murray Rothbard lecture is also available, but I would encourage others to ask that the complete lecture on “Mises, Keynes, Friedman, Laffer: The Austrian Perspective” be made available.
