This introductory chapter begins by setting out the rationale for research on Hayek. It then outlines the challenges of interpreting Hayek's thought. Among these is the fact that his writings lie within the Austrian tradition; and that Hayek seems to have changed his mind about certain things over the years or, put in another light, that his work appears to contain contradictions. An overview of the three parts of the book is also presented.

Keywords: Friedrich A. Hayek; economic theorists; Austrian tradition; economic theory
