WHAT DID HAYEK THINK OF ALFRED SCHUTZ?

Richard Ebeling tells us:

Long ago (1975), when I was first becoming interested in Schutz’s writings on intersubjective structures of meaning and ideal types, I asked Hayek what he thought of Schutz and if Schutz had any influence on him.

He told me that he never could make sense of what Schutz was saying in the discussions in Mises’ private seminar in Vienna, and that he never understood Schutz’s use of pheomenological philosophy in his book, “The Phenomenology of the Social World” (1932).

Hayek said that Schutz would have to be explained to him by Fritz Machlup and Felix Kaufmann.
