4. Oktober 1991 Collected Works of F.A. Hayek (Buch 1)
Hayek gives the main arguments for the free-market case and presents his manifesto on the "errors of socialism." Hayek argues that socialism has, from its origins, been mistaken on factual, and even on logical, grounds and that its repeated failures in the many different practical applications of socialist ideas that this century has witnessed were the direct outcome of these errors. He labels as the "fatal conceit" the idea that "man is able to shape the world around him according to his wishes."

"The achievement of The Fatal Conceit is that it freshly shows why socialism must be refuted rather than merely dismissed—then refutes it again."—David R. Henderson, Fortune.

"Fascinating. . . . The energy and precision with which Mr. Hayek sweeps away his opposition is impressive."—Edward H. Crane, Wall Street Journal

F. A. Hayek is considered a pioneer in monetary theory, the preeminent proponent of the libertarian philosophy, and the ideological mentor of the Reagan and Thatcher "revolutions."

F.A. Hayek presents a fundamental examination and critique of the central issues of socialism. His analysis begins with David Hume's insight that 'the rules of morality ...are not conclusions of our reason.' 'Was Socialism a mistake?' he asks, and drawing upon research in evolutionary epistemology, moral tradition, and other current ethical thinking, he probes for answers. He argues that socialism, from its origins, has been mistaken on scientific and factual, even on logical grounds - and that its repeated failures were the direct outcome of these scientific errors. Highly readable and controversial, a work of considerable scholarship and energy, The Fatal Conceit will greatly advance our contemporary understanding of the economic and political issues confronting the world, especially important as debates between socialism and capitalism grow. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This is a must-read for anyone interested in what mysterious forces are fueling our world.In his last book, The Fatal Conceit: The Errors of Socialism, published in 1988 (ironically, one year prior to fall of the Berlin Wall) , Hayek shoots one final poison arrow into the heart of socialist thought. Capitalism, or , what he prefers to call it, the spontaneous extended order of human cooperation , is to Hayek the liberator of humanity. He pits the advocates of the spontaneous extended order created by a competitive market against advocates who demand a deliberate arrangement of human interaction by central authority based on collective demand over available resources. (page 7) The "fatal conceit", which the title refers to, is the idea that the ability to acquire skills stems from reason. (page 21) Imitation and not insight or reason guide the spectrum of human nature and potential. Hayek's logic stems from his adherence to David Hume's conclusion that ' the rules of morality ... are not the conclusions of our reason. To Hayek and Hume, our morals were not the descendants of our human powers of reason. On the contrary, learning through imitation is considered the progenitor's of our insight, reason and understanding. (page 21) Our morals, Hayek believes, were naturally selected from pitting one tribe with one set of morals and behaviors against another with less beneficial Morals and behaviors. Only those tribes with the best morals, behaviors, and habits survived in nature. These survivors passed on their advantageous morals to the next generation through the children imitating their traditions. Our descendants did not consciously choose their morals, or fully appreciate or comprehend their benefits. Nature took care of selecting our morals for us. Lesen Sie weiter... ›

5.0 von 5 Sternen Incredible Arrogance 27. Oktober 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Being a businessman with 2 degrees in economics, the logic and "rightness" of free market economics seems intuitive to me, so I was always confused as to why anyone could believe that socialism or communism, which have destroyed so many lives and so much wealth, is superior to capitalism. Hayek does a superb job in explaining the thought process of socialist thinkers, and then demonstrating why they are wrong. I'm simply amazed at the arrogance, and naivity of socialist thinkers. They clearly don't understand the complexity of the market, or else they never would believe that they could build a top down hierarchical structure superior to the free market. Unfortunately, Hayek is preaching to the choir, because the people who read this book will already be committed, at least on some level, to capitalism, and libertarianism.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Clear speaking classic of the ages 4. März 1999
Von Ein Kunde
This seminal book was the book that put more teeth to the theories he put forth in Serfdom. The basics are now standard thought, of course, and this magnum opus by the primary progeniitor of capitalist theory has to be taken seriously by all, even those who disagree.
The other negative comments have been unfair. While there is substantial room to disagree with Hayek, the range of his assault on socialism and his substantially correct assessments cannot be undermined. As the century closes, Hayeks more specific criticisms gain more prescience as time goes on.
Read this book. It is the basis for an understanding of the problems inherent in socialism and the command economy.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Beyond Darwin: Cultural evolution and economics 9. Januar 1997
Von Ein Kunde
This soberly written book by a Nobel Laureate economist is a summary of the author's thoughts on socialism, knowledge in society, and the evolution of society and what he calls the "extended order" (roughly the interconnected system of transactions that make up the economy). The main argument about cultural evolution is more tantalizingly interesting than conclusively thought out, but anybody interested in history, sociology, economics, politics or even evolution and ethnic differences in modern societies should find fascinating ideas here. My personal opinion is that the work can be fruitfully coupled with several of Thomas Sowell's books, but I'm sure other people will have other perspectives on the work just as interesting.

As for economics, the book works out the calculation argument against socialism, an economic argument that to people who have read austrian economics is perhaps the most impressive and thorough argument against communism or socialism ever articulated. If one supports socialist ideals, which Hayek, the author, did in his youth, one should really take this argument into serious consideration. It claims, a claim central to the evolutionary thesis, that socialism as such is simply a misguided attempt to correct a misunderstood system (the market economy) that solves problems (allocation of goods, coordination of economic activites etc.) unsolvable by any other means. Stimulating, original and well written, the book is strongly recommended.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Central 18. Juli 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Simply one of the most important books of our historical era.
_The Road to Serfdom_ and _The Fatal Conceit_ were the bookends of Hayek's career.
_The Road To Serfdom_ roughly started Hayek's fame and was the first word spoken (along with pioneers like Popper) against this "century of the state".
_The Fatal Conceit_ roughly concluded Hayek's career and long life, and stands as a fairly magnificent beacon at the end of the abject failure of the 50 year experiment in collectivism and plannerism, the end of the 100 million+ slaughter caused by socialism in our century, and indeed the final success of the "Austrian School" of economics and the tremendous prosperity we all now enjoy due to it (including handy features such as amazon.com).
Hopefully this beacon, this book, will shine for many centuries before it is forgotten and, once again, civilization slips away for awhile for another experiment in collectivism and planner-ism.
Just a superb book of macrohistorical importance, magnificently written; every chapter seems more important than ever (such as the warnings on "junk science" and the corruption of language).
It is the primary beacon marking the end of the "great socialist experiment disaster" of our century, written by the man who saw it coming, had to sit through it, and wrote the cure.
