One of the greatest errors in the history of economics is to presume Hayek had a single stance toward the epistemology of the market and of agents. We report on recent research that argues for three different positions over the course of his life: Knowledge dispersed, tacit, and impersonal. This trajectory will prove significant for the rest of our narrative.

Keywords:   Friedrich Hayek, epistemology axis, tacit knowledge, nonarticulable knowledge, evolutionary theory
