Hayek Revisited, published under the auspices of The Locke Institute, contains eleven papers (plus an Introduction by Boudewijn Bouckaert, Annette Godart-Van Der Kroon, and Martin De Vliegere) that were prepared for four conferences sponsored by the Belgian- Dutch Ludwig Von Mises Institute during 1993–1996. The papers are organized into three categories: “Spontaneous Order, Ethics, and Freedom,” “Farewell to the Welfare State?,” and “Europe: Widening or Deepening?” The book is not a study of Hayek’s theories, as such, but an attempt to extend and apply those ideas.
