Nieuwe websites

Met veel plezier neem ik vandaag kennis van 2 nieuwe websites - danku coordinationproblem voor de pointers.

De eerste is The Hayek Project. We zullen de website zelf aan het woord laten:

One purpose of the Hayek Project is to extend the epistemological project into other fields, such as political science, where the role of fallible ideas (as opposed to interests and values) as determinants of political behavior and causes of policy error has received relatively little attention.

Vergeet ook zeker hun literatuur sectie niet te raadplegen; goede lijst van literatuur.

Maar zo mogelijk nog interessanter, is de website van Analytical Anarchism. (AA grapjes worden nooit meer hetzelfde.) Ook hier zullen we de website zelf aan het woord laten:

The purpose of Analytical Anarchism is to create an open forum for the academic community to promote and discuss research in analytical anarchism.
What is analytical anarchism? As the subtitle says, it is the positive political economy of anarchism, or simply, anarchism from the economic point of view. Peter Boettke divides anarchist thought into three categories:
1. Utopian — following in the tradition of William Godwin’s An Enquiry Concerning Political Justice (1973).
2. Revolutionary — following in the tradition of Mikhail Bakunin and the First International, 1864-76.
3. Analytical — in the tradition of Murray Rothbard’s For a New Liberty (1973) and David Friedman’s The Machinery of Freedom (1973).
The analytical anarchism research program has developed out of this last tradition, and is currently being pursued by economists such as Pete Leeson, Ed Stringham, and Chris Coyne.
Why anarchy? Research in anarchism has a fundamental theoretical importance for understanding the mystery of cooperation among strangers, which forms the basis of modern social order. Understanding anarchy also has a critical practical importance for transition economies, Third World development, and post-war reconstruction. Economic analysis of these problems cannot assume a functioning state.
For an introduction to the subject, see Boettke’s “Anarchism as a Progressive Research Program in Political Economy.”

(De paper van Boettke kan ik zeker aanraden.)

Het zaligste aan deze website, is de enorm uitgebreide literatuursectie met bronnen over anarchie uit politieke wetenschappen, economie, sociologie, antropologie, filosofie, ontwikkelingstheorie, etc. Heerlijk project om referenties te zoeken voor de komende jaren.
