FRIEDRICH A.VON HAYEK book
A concise obituary evaluation of a scholar of the magisterial caliber of the late Friedrich A.Hayek must necessarily aim to be far less than comprehensive. Hayek’s work has been so extensive, both in sheer volume and in the variety of areas explored, that a short essay can hope, at best, only to highlight some selected feature held to be central to that work. Certainly any detailed review of Hayek’s personal biography can and must be dispensed with: this scholar’s scientific achievements attained an eminence which render the details of his life story, except where they directly contribute to a deeper appreciation and understanding of his work, of distinctly secondary interest.
