Friedrich Hayek on Social Evolution and the Origins of Tradition

November 4, 2011 by

Libertarianism.org has released this exclusive video from November 22, 1983 of F. A. Hayek discussing the evolution of morality and social norms, arguing that they result from unplanned, emergent processes. He contrasts this conclusion with other philosophical accounts of law and morality.

A short clip from a rare Murray Rothbard lecture is also available, but I would encourage others to ask that the complete lecture on “Mises, Keynes, Friedman, Laffer: The Austrian Perspective” be made available.

The full Rothbard talk will be posted. There was a problem with the transfer from the original tape, so we only got the last 9 minutes of the talk as a digital file. We’re having the tape re-digitized — along with quite a lot of other tapes of this sort, including more from Rothbard and some, I believe, from Mises (though those may end up being audio-only) — and will post the full talk as soon as we have it.

Aaron, thank you for getting these things up online on the beautiful new site. Best of luck to you.

On another note, I’m having trouble with the links from the front page going to nothing but blank pages. Do you know what that’s about?

Thank you Aaron for your prompt reply and immediate response.

I wish you all the best.

Yes, thank you, Mr. Powell, I look forward to listening to it.
