Do ANT proponents and critics attempt to incorporate or at least acknowledge the work of Hayek on spontaneous orders?  Not saying Hayek's the last word on the subject, but is seems like some of this is re-inventing the Hayekian wheel.  (To be sure, Hayek was influenced by his predecessors, including Adam Smith and David Hume.  So, he's neither the last word or the first word on the topic.)
