The study outlines the career of Kamilla Lányi, who died recently. She was among the highly educated, original, unclassifiable Hungarian economists of the last half-century, who left a huge number of papers for posterity and influenced deeply the theoretical and economy-policy choices of younger colleagues, yet received no scholarly title, chair or award from the great figures in the profession or politics at any time. She moved as an instinctive, sovereign scholar in modern economics and in the border areas between traditional sociology and social history, and as a committed democrat, stretched the boundaries of liberal economic thinking. Lányi's work is presented here in a way that allows her career as an economist to reflect as much as possible from a period when a wild Stalinist and then a '56 rebel could be made out of a hardly grown-up apprentice sociographer, who never denied a long subsequent period as an advocate of market socialism and a welfare market economy, but departed this life amidst deep anxieties and reservations about capitalism at the end of the millennium.
