    Abstract

    The Sensory Order (1952) is a work on theoretical psychology, which can be understood as an attempt to explain the relationship between cosmos and mind. By addressing these matters, Hayek established solid basis for his own ideas about economic knowledge and the problem to be solved by economics. The purpose of this essay is to give a plausible account of why The Sensory Order takes a crucial place in the special manner in which Hayek approaches both individualism and economic knowledge. This exercise will help recognize the reasons that led to Hayek’s interest in theoretical psychology, and how his ideas on this field permeate his understanding of the subject matter of the social sciences.
