Human Action Part One with David Gordon

Fight Censorship, Share This Post!

In the second installment of our series on Mises’s Human Action, Dr. David Gordon joins the show to walk us through Part One. The beginning of the book is considered its most “philosophical” material, where Mises lays out the basics of praxeology and epistemology as fundamental to understanding economics.

Dr. Gordon and host Jeff Deist consider each of the book’s first seven chapters, with topics including: Mises’s categories of action and causality, a priori disciplines, polylogism, “felt uneasiness,” value and preferences, praxeology as it relates to time and uncertainty, probability and its application to human action, and the nature of production. 

If you’ve wanted to read Human Action, this is your opportunity to hear it explained by great economists and scholars!
