    The Culture of Viennese Science and the Riddle of Austrian Liberalism.Malachi Haim Hacohen - 2009 - Modern Intellectual History 6 (2):369-396.
    Vienna's scientific culture has long attracted historians' attention. Impressive though the scientific accomplishments of Viennese scientists were, and recognized by numerous Nobel prizes, they alone do not account for the historians' interest. Rather, Vienna's culture of science was imbedded in broader humanistic visions and invested in political and educational projects of major historical significance.

    Karl Popper in Exile: The Viennese Progressive Imagination and the Making of The Open Society.Malachi Haim Hacohen - 1996 - Philosophy of the Social Sciences 26 (4):452-492.
    This article explores the impact of Popper's exile on the formation of The Open Society. It proposes homelessness as a major motif in Popper's life and work. His emigration from clerical-fascist Austria, sojourn in New Zealand during World War II, and social isolation in postwar England constituted a permanent exile.

The Open Society was (...)

    Leonard Krieger: Historicization and Political Engagement in Intellectual HistoryIdeas and Events: Professing History.Malachi Haim Hacohen, Leonard Krieger & M. L. Brick - 1996 - History and Theory 35 (1):80.
    This essay explores the methodological and historiographical legacy of Leonard Krieger , one of the most sophisticated and influential intellectual historians of his generation. The author argues that Krieger's mode of historicization exemplifies essential methodological practices neglected by contemporary historians and provides a model for scholarly political engagement. The essay is divided into four sections. The first provides an overview of Krieger's last two works: Time's Reasons, a methodological and historiographical study, and Ideas and Events, a posthumously published collection of (...)
