hayek on pragmatism

recently quoted by tom woods in an excellent speech at the 2009 mises circle in greenville:

Those who have concerned themselves exclusively with what seemed practicable in the existing state of opinion have constantly found that even this had rapidly become politically impossible as the result of changes in a public opinion which they have done nothing to guide — unless we can make the philosophic foundations of a free society once more a living intellectual issue, and its implementation a task which challenges the ingenuity and imagination of our liveliest minds.

f. a. hayek, the intellectuals and socialism.
