Comment on Timothy Sandefur’s “Some Problems with Spontaneous Order”
By Gus diZerega
This article appeared in the Fall 2010 issue of The Independent Review

Hayek’s social thought (The Independent Review, Summer 2009) makes some legitimate criticisms of Hayek’s ethical framework but is marred by a misunderstanding of what constitutes spontaneous order. Sandefur’s mistake arises from his view of constructivist rationalism as the opposite of spontaneous order.
