The Sensory Order. An Inquiry into the Foundations of Theoretical Psychology.
With an Introduction by Heinrich Klüver.London, Routledge & Kegan Paul Limited, 1952 Stock Code: 136756
NotesFirst UK edition, first impression, published in Chicago in the same year. The Sensory Order, Hayek's second book after his move to Chicago, is the final form of a thesis Hayek had developed in Vienna in the 1920s on philosophical psychology. Hayek argues that there are inherent limits to the human mind's capacity to understand itself, and that human beings know much more than they can ever explicitly explain.
Octavo. Original green cloth, spine lettered in silver. With the dust jacket.
Trivial mark to front cover, very light running crease to top corner of pages. A very good copy in the jacket, former tears around base of spine panel and to folds expertly repaired on verso, one small split remaining to front flap fold.
