Trailing Hayek in Mind

Here is the table of contents for my forthcoming (in press) edited volume focusing on The Sensory Order – this is the first salvo of shameless promotion.

Hayek in Mind: Hayek’s Philosophical Psychology

Having just delivered an edited volume entitled Hayek in Mind: Hayek’s Philosophical Psychology to the publisher, this is an opportune time to make widely available, for the first time, some photographs so generously sent to me by Walt Weimer (contact made through the good offices of a few of his students, some featured in the photos…

Hayek, Weimer, Gibson and Rosch

Here is the flyer from the legendary conference convened by Walt Weimer – the other notables included Gibson, who I’m told snubbed Hayek despite so warmly receiving The Sensory Order and Eleanor Rosch later to find fame as co-author of  The embodied mind: Cognitive science and human experience.  It is amazing that Weimer had (still has I might add!!) such balls…

Cognition and the Symbolic Processes: Hayek and Gibson

Here are some fuzzy but nevertheless recognizable Polaroid photos taken at the now legendary conference convened by Walter Weimer. Weimer was so crucial to bringing Hayek’s The Sensory Order back to life after it had “fallen still-born from the press”. In attendance was also J.J. Gibson who, though was favorably disposed towards TSO in the…

Brain-Body-Mind

Here is the recently published book by my chum Erol Başar who as it happens is also contributing to my forthcoming edited book entitled Hayek in Mind: Hayek’s Philosophical Psychology. Not surprisingly,  there is much reference to Hayek’s The Sensory Order peppered throughout Erol’s book most notably in section 2.12 (pp. 39-41). Other distinguished neuroscientists who appreciate…

Andy Clark in the New York Times

After some very middling opinion articles in this forum we have Andy Clark who is both a superb stylist and actually has interesting things to say. The title of the piece echos Alva Noë’s recent Out of Our Heads. Andy references some great images recently featured in the NYT that I was tempted to say something…

Knowledge Wants to be Free: From Hayek to the Hacker

My talk “Knowledge Wants to be Free: From Hayek to the Hacker” for the 2010 Wirth Conference at Simon Fraser University October 15 & 16, 2010 on “Austrian Views on Experts & Epistemic Monopolies.”  I think the talk went down OK. Good to see some old friends and make new friends. Thanks to Wirth for sponsoring the…

Joaquin Fuster

I recently had the honor and good fortune to be on the same panel as neuroscientist Joaquin Fuster. We had been in correspondence over the years: the intellectual generosity of this man, one of the giants in the field, knows no bounds. I was thrilled to finally meet him in person. Below are some shots…
