Varela and Maturana merged a phenomenological and hermeneutical standpoint with a connectionist theory of perception. Comparing Hayek with Varela and Maturana helps us to understand why Hayek’s cognitive psychology is consistent with Gadamer’s hermeneutics.  3, 4 and 5. e. with a standpoint criticized by Hayek. Chapter 2 also shows that Gadamer’s hermeneutics has nothing to do with skeptical postmodernism and is supportive of an objective theory of truth. I argue that Gadamer’s philosophy is compatible with Hayek’s in so far as it is, like the latter, a fallibilist theory of knowledge in the Popperian sense.
