Definitivamente la propuesta teórica de Hayek calza como complemento a lo que originalmente Mises había propuesto en la Acción Humana, es notable que Hayek queriendo tener un poco más de rigurosidad epistemológica haya sentado bases que incluso pueden influir en la neurología.

La obra también cuenta con un análisis por Ángel García y Oscar Vara que le añaden una perspectiva de la Escuela Austríaca para demostrar como es posible compatibilizar las teorías de Hayek en cuanto al estudio de la mente.

“The very conception of such a completion of the task of science is a contradction in terms. The quest of science is, therefore, by its nature a never-ending task in which every step ahead with necessity creates new problems.” 2 likes
“Science thus tends necessarily towards an ultimate state in which all knowledge is embodied in the definitions of the objects with which it is concerned; and in which all true statements about these objects are therefore analytical or tautological and could not be disproved by any experience. The observation that any object did not behave as it should could then only mean that it was not an object of the kind it was thought to be.” 1 likes
