This chapter examines the use of republican “rule of law” in the economic and political thought of Hayek as exemplary of Foucault’s thesis that neoliberalism fashions an “economic rule of law” in order to attack political freedom. The chapter also points out the fundamental importance of republican conception of law and freedom in Foucault’s critical analysis of liberal governmentality.
