Hayek’s Official Biographer: The Lost Insights of William Warren Bartley III

  • Robert Leeson
Part of the Archival Insights into the Evolution of Economics Series book series (AIEE)

Abstract

When Friedrich August Hayek died (1992, age 92) his knowledge had helped undermine the legitimacy of one crusading faith: quasi-religious certainty about the benevolence of government. When his biographer, William Warren Bartley III, died (1990, age 55) his knowledge could also have gone on to perform a similar socially useful function: deconstructing and thus diffusing some of the fratricidal disputes between the ‘children of Abraham’ or ‘the people of the book’.
