Teleonomy seeks to demonstrate the essential relationship binding liberty and tradition. This thesis runs entirely contrary to the prevailing dogmas of the age. At present, the loudest defenders of "liberty" are wholly libertine, while the defenders of "tradition", however many now remain, understand the might of the state as the sole means to their own ends. In its three parts, Teleonomy does away with the misconceptions underlying both of these political philosophies, and in their wake establishes a positive unity of libertarian means and traditionalist ends.
The work begins with an attempted destruction of what is commonly understood by the words economy and economics, by proving that the only possible grounds of such a science are such that any limitation of its scope to a subset of human reality or of human value must be unjustifiable, such that any conception of 'economics' which draws some intrinsic relation to the monetary nexus must be done away with. Following this, it is shown that all statist, conservative reactions to the decadence highlighted in the first part must be confused and counter-productive. In its latter half, the work establishes liberty's true response to what has thus far been stated, through an analysis of the fundamental structure underlying all human behaviour, resulting in the demonstration that freedom and duty within society arise jointly from a singular spiritual quality of man.
