Hayek, Friedrich A. (1952). Individualism: True and False, @lantis Version

It is the contention that, by tracing the combined effects of individual actions, we discover that many of the institutions on which human achievements rest have arisen and are functioning without a designing and directing mind; that, as Adam Ferguson expressed it, “nations stumble upon establishments, which are indeed the result of human action but not the result of human design”;

and that the spontaneous collaboration of free men often creates things which are greater than their individual minds can ever fully comprehend.


Hayek, Friedrich A. (1945). The Use of Knowledge in Societ, @lantis Version

The peculiar character of the problem of a rational economic order is determined precisely by the fact that the knowledge of the circumstances of which we must make use never exists in concentrated or integrated form but solely as the dispersed bits of incomplete and frequently contradictory knowledge which all the separate individuals possess. The economic problem of society is thus not merely a problem of how to allocate “given” resources—if “given” is taken to mean given to a single mind which deliberately solves the problem set by these “data.” It is rather a problem of how to secure the best use of resources known to any of the members of society, for ends whose relative importance only these individuals know. Or, to put it briefly, it is a problem of the utilization of knowledge which is not given to anyone in its totality.

If old truths are to retain their hold on men’s minds, they must be restated in the language and concepts of successive generations. —Friedrich Hayek (1960)
