The Open Society and Its Enemies


in the reader, its object is not so much to popularize
the questions
treated as to solve them. In order to serve this double
purpose,
all matters of more specialized interest have been
confined to
the notes collected at the end of the book.
ACKNO WLEDGEMENTS
I wish to express my gratitude to all my friends who
have
made it possible for me to write this book. Mr. C. G.
F. Simkin
has not only helped me with an earlier version, but has
given
me the opportunity of clarifying many problems in
detailed
discussions over a period of nearly four years. Miss
Margaret
Dalziel has assisted me in the preparation of various
drafts and
of the final manuscript. Her untiring help has been
invaluable.
Mr. H. Larsen's interest in the problem of historicism
was a
great encouragement. Mr. T. K. Ewer has read the
manuscript
and has made many suggestions for its improvement. Miss
Helen Hervey has put a great deal of work into the
compilation
of the Index.
I am deeply indebted to Professor F. A. von Hayek.
Without
his interest and support the book would not have been
published.
Dr. E. Gombrich has undertaken to see the book through
the
press, a burden to which was added the strain of an
exacting
correspondence between England and New Zealand. He has
been so helpful that I can hardly say how much I owe to
him.
