The Sensory Order: An Inquiry Into the Foundations of Theoretical Psychology

Front Cover
University of Chicago Press, 1952 - Mind and body - 209 pages
F.A. Hayek (1899-1992) was one of the leading voices in economic and social theory, but he also wrote on theoretical psychology, including in the landmark book The Sensory Order. Although The Sensory Order was not widely engaged with by either psychologists or social scientists at the time of publication, it is seen today as essential for fully understanding Hayek's more well-known work.
