Kurt Leube, one of Friedrich A. von Hayek’s disciples, gives a brief biography and a list of his mentor’s works. He tells the story of his teacher, from his early years, and the atmosphere he was raised in, to his death in 1992. Leube illustrates Hayek’s years in World War I, his studies, and the various years he spent in Chicago, his teaching positions at University of Freiburg in Germany, and his winning of the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences in 1974. Furthermore, he briefly explains Hayek’s evolutionary theory, in which he claimed that every single human action is purposefully undertaken with the rational belief to be better off than otherwise.
