Spontaneous Order

Disciplines: Political Science, Sociology

Theory of Austrian social scientist Friedrich A Hayek (1899-1992).

Social order is not deliberately created but arises out of the natural selection of those institutions and values and practices which are effective, so that a traditional framework develops over time within which individuals may operate securely.
