This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: F. A. Hayek, best known for reviving the ideas of classical liberalism, was also a prominent scholar of the philosopher John Stuart Mill. Hayek is even credited with beginning a new era of Mill scholarship. One of Hayek's greatest undertakings was his collecting and editing of Mill's correspondence with his wife, Harriet Taylor-Mill. The correspondence that first appeared in Hayek's 1951 collection soon became essential reading for any reexamination of the foundation of liberalism, the sources of Mill's radicalism, and the influence of Mill's good friend and wife. Volume 16 of The Collected Works of F. A. Hayek showcases the fascinating intersection of two prominent thinkers from two successive centuries. In Hayek on Mill: The Mill-Taylor Friendship and Related Writings , we see how Hayek situated Mill within the complicated social and intellectual milieu of nineteenth-century Europe and within the mid-twentieth-century debates on socialism and planning. Part One of the volume republishes Hayek's own collection, John Stuart Mill and Harriet Taylor: Their Friendship and Subsequent Marriage , which traces the narrative of Mill's intellectual development alongside the fascinating intellectual love story of Mill and his wife. Part Two presents in chronological order Hayek's essays and correspondence related to Mill and Taylor. These materials engagingly reveal Hayek's early interest in Mill, specifically, Hayek's fascination with the influence of Harriet Taylor-Mill and Gustave D'Eichthal on Mill, in Mill's methodology and his shifting position on socialism, and in Mill's Political Economy . Also included are various reviews and introductions to Mill's works that in large measure owe their publication to Hayek's fascinating collection.

Inhaltsangabe: Best known for reviving the tradition of classical liberalism, F. A. Hayek was also a prominent scholar of the philosopher John Stuart Mill. One of his greatest undertakings was a collection of Mill?s extensive correspondence with his longstanding friend and later companion and wife, Harriet Taylor-Mill. Hayek first published the Mill-Taylor correspondence in 1951, and his edition soon became required reading for any study of the nineteenth-century foundations of liberalism.
This latest addition to the University of Chicago Press?s Collected Works of F. A. Hayek series showcases the fascinating intersections between two of the most prominent thinkers from two successive centuries. Hayek situates Mill within the complex social and intellectual milieu of nineteenth-century Europe—as well as within twentieth-century debates on socialism and planning—and uncovers the influence of Taylor-Mill on Mill?s political economy. The volume features the Mill-Taylor correspondence and brings together for the first time Hayek?s related writings, which were widely credited with beginning a new era of Mill scholarship.
