Chicago: University of Chicago 1952.

First edition of Hayek’s foundational study of cognitive behavior—”an exercise in profound thinking.” Octavo, original cloth. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, “To David Grene with all the best wishes from F.A.H. Nov. 52.” The recipient David Grene, was a professor of classics at the University of Chicago and co-founder of the Committee on Social Thought. In 1950, Hayek left the London School of Economics for the University of Chicago, where he became a professor in the Committee on Social Thought. Near fine in the rare dust jacket with some wear to the spine and extremities. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. A nice association.

The Sensory Order, first published in 1952, sets forth F. A. Hayek's classic theory of mind in which he describes the mental mechanism that classifies perceptions that cannot be accounted for by physical laws. "A most encouraging example of a sustained attempt to bring together information, inference, and hypothesis in the several fields of biology, psychology, and philosophy" (Quarterly Review of Biology).
