Bruce Caldwell, Distinguished Visiting Fellow at the Hoover Institution, Director of the Center for the History of Political Economy and Research Professor of Economics at Duke University, presented “Mont Perelin 1947,” where he discussed a chapter from forthcoming biography of Friedrich A. Hayek, which he is co-authoring with Hansjoerg Klausinger. He is the author of Beyond Positivism: Economic Methodology in the Twentieth Century and Hayek's Challenge: An Intellectual Biography of F. A. Hayek. Since 2002, he has served as the general editor of The Collected Works of F. A. Hayek, a multivolume collection of Hayek’s writings.


This talk is part of the History Working Group Seminar Series. A central piece of the History Working Group is the seminar series, which is hosted in partnership with the Hoover Library & Archives. The seminar series was launched in the fall of 2019, and thus far has included six talks from Hoover research fellows, visiting scholars, and Stanford faculty. The seminars provide outside experts with an opportunity to present their research and receive feedback on their work. While the lunch seminars have grown in reputation, they have been purposefully kept small in order to ensure that the discussion retains a good seminar atmosphere.
