Hayek in Mind: Editorial Introduction

Here is an uncorrected proof (do not cite) of my introduction to Hayek in Mind: Hayek’s Philosophical Psychology. Further details will be made available just as soon as the publisher has updated the webpage for this book (according to Amazon the book will be made available on December 13th). A dedicated website to the volume can…

Adam Smith and Mirror Neurons

It is wonderful at last to see the Adam Smith of The theory of moral sentiments rather than The wealth of nations finally getting some attention. Smith’s moral psychology is amazingly presient. Here is one of the better articles by the very talented Nicolas Baumard making the connection.
