First edition of Hayek's important lecture on freedom and the individual.
"In a pamphlet on Individualism: True and False (1946) he contrasted a voluntaristic, spontaneous, undesigned order of freedom of the individual with a rationalistically designed and constructed system. 'True' was the undesigned individualism described and esteemed by Hume, Smith, Burke, Acton, and de Tocqueville; 'false' the individualism designed and promoted by the encyclopedists, Jean Jacques Rousseau, and the Physiocrats" (IESS).
