Epistemological Problems of Economics. Ludwig Von Mises
by Ludwig Von Mises




Overview -

First published in German in 1933 and in English in 1960, Epistemological Problems of Economics presents Ludwig von Mises's views on the logical and epistemological features of social interpretation as well as his argument that the Austrian theory of value is the core element of a general theory of human behavior that transcends traditional limitations of economic science.

This volume is unique among Mises's works in that it contains a collection of essays in which he contested the theories of intellectuals he respected such as Carl Menger, Eugen von B hm-Bawerk, and Max Weber. Mises describes how value theory applies to human action at all times and places as opposed to economic theory, which applies only to a human action guided by economic calculation.

In a review of Epistemological Problems of Economics that was published in Teacher's College Record in 1965, F. A. Hayek stated, "If Professor Mises's Human Action . . . must be regarded as the definitive statement of his views, the distinctive features of his notions of the nature of social science have found their freshest expression in the present series of essays, dating from 1928 to 1933."

Ludwig von Mises (1881-1973) was the leading spokesman of the Austrian School of economics throughout most of the twentieth century.
