Abstract

In this paper I will analyze the economic, politlcal, and social thoughts of F. A. Hayek and K. R. Popper. First, the question of what the central issue of social science is, will be discussed. According to Hayek and Popper, the chief issue that social scientists must consider are unintended results. Secondly, I will attempt to make clear how Hayek and Popper view the world. The key concepts of Hayek's and Popper's thought are a spontaneous order and the open society, respectively. Thirdly, I must deal with the problem of value judgement. Hayek seems to avoid this difficult problem, while Popper employs a dualism of facts and decisions, when dealing with value judgement
