Episode 9 is out and in this lesson I tackle the issues of uncertainty in human action. I address the 3 ways to think about an action, the nature of predictions about the future, and the limits of praxeological predictions.
Episode 8 deals with the concept of time. We’re all familiar with time as a scientific concept used to explain the movements of objects to space. We usually think of time as what our watches and clocks measure. But Praxeologically, time is a very different thing. Time is the implied idea of the change that occurs through definite actions of purposeful actors. There is a past, present and future with respect to action, but the expression of these ideas can differ drastically.
We took a week off in releasing this episode, but we had filmed it on schedule. It’s among some of the longer episodes, too. There’s a lot of text, but I think I did a pretty good job at introducing people to what Praxeology means when it refers to time, and how important it is to understanding why things like mathematics (a science where all the relations and implications have no temporal or causal bearing) are completely innappropriate to analyze human action. Hope you enjoy it!
Praxeology should not be a subject only you and your close friends understand. The logic of human action should be embraced by everyone around the world! If you’re interested in helping me translate episodes of the show into different languages, I’d be soooo grateful!
Shout out to Jonatan from Israel who turned me on to a wonderful website called Translated.by, they allow you to crowd-translate line-by-line any text you submit to it.
Here are links to the first 7 episodes. I’ll be adding a section link on the left to continue to add more episode texts as they come out. Let’s do this. Let’s have the world understand the youngest of all sciences.
