A striking similarity exists between Spencer’s and Hayek’s epistemological, social and political views. Both are individualists, fallibilists, evolutionists, anti-constructivists, theorists of the “dispersion of knowledge” and of “spontaneous order”, critics of legal positivism and socialism. Curiously, Hayek cites very few times Spencer and does not indicate him ever as one of his reference authors. This article highlights the affinity between these two thinkers by comparing some key aspects of their thought.
