Hayek's Chicago Seminar on Justice and Equality

  • Hayek

Tags Political Theory

In 1950-51 Hayek presented a seminar at the University of Chicago entitled "Justice and Equality." The seminar was opened to faculty and students and it was Hayek's 

. . . hope that the seminar can be conducted with the participation of members of all the various departments concerned, particularly a number of lawyers, economists, and philosophers, and that the discussion will be to some extent a [d]iscussion among faculty members in front of the students, though of course without excluding the students from active participation. 

Here is the seminar syllabus including the topical outline, bibliography, and seemingly a partial listing of guest co-leaders or leaders (it is not clear which) of some of the sessions of the seminar.

Joseph Salerno is academic vice president of the Mises Institute, professor emeritus of economics at Pace University, and editor of the Quarterly Journal of Austrian Economics.
