Ciao, io sono Praxgirl

Studio la logica dell'azione umana, una scienza chiamata Prasseologia.

prasseologia è un contesto per capire il comportamento intenzionale degli esseri umani. Ci rende le leggi universali dell'azione.

Storicamente la Prasseologia deriva dall'Economia, quando fu concepito che la logica economica non ci sapeva solo spiegare prezzi ed i fenomeni del mercato ma anche la natura di tutte le decisioni umane.

Ti starai chiedendo, ma perchè dovrei studiare prasseologia?

La stessa domanda potrebbe essere rivolta a tutti gli altri campi della scienza come la chimica o la fisica. La risposta è molto chiara: perchè ci consente di capire il mondo in cui viviamo!

La fisica mi può dire perchè toccare un filo elettrico è pericoloso. Ma se devo maneggiarlo mi può dire che usando un isolante, come la gomma, potrei farlo senza pericolo.

Nello stesso modo la Prasseologia ci da degli strumenti per pensare all'azione umana oltre la facciata.

Un esempio: conosci qualcuno che gli piacciono progetti fai-da-te? Immagina se

Ted came to me and said “I want to save money, so I just shingled my own roof for $1000 in materials. It would have cost me $5000 if I had paid the professionals!”

But what if Ted, having spent his time and effort at his job, could have earned $8000 instead of fixing his house? That means he would have had the new roof, and $3000 left in his pocket!

Now it may be that Ted liked working on his roof so much more than his usual job, that it was worth giving up the $3000. But if his goal was to save money, we can see that he was in error.

Knowing Praxeology can also help you understand the limitations of human planning.

This is a standard #2 pencil. Contrasted with the tools of the past—for example a spear, which has roughly the same shape - they are vastly different in one key aspect: while spears have historically been created by one person, a pencil is the product of the harmonious actions of a vast number of people.

No one person knows how to make a pencil. Neither the owner of the pencil company, nor the worker in the pencil factory, entirely know how to make this everyday tool! Not the miner of the graphite nor the lumberjack who supplies the wood used, need to consider what the long term destinations are of their individual products are.

What I hold in my hand is a miracle of social cooperation on a massive scale, with no central planner. The end result is an efficiently produced pencil at a cost that's affordable for almost everyone.

And as complex as the pencil is, you realize that it’s relatively simple when compared to something even more complex—like what I’m using to communicate with you now: the internet! How about the entire global economy? How is it that so many resources move around the world in harmony?

People of the past had only a limited understanding of this intricate network of cooperation. Either God or Governments must have planned such order. But this is not the case!

Praxeology is the science that enlightens us to the nature of human action and interaction in a logical structure that we can understand. Praxeology even explains the nature and origin of civilization itself!

I’m really excited about each lesson we’ll be exploring.

Starting with the foundational concepts, we can properly explain the logic of human action.

Later we'll see how the laws of Praxeology give us a more complete understanding of society, and expose the severe limits of all attempts to steer it by force.

Just remember that’s it not difficult to understand; all you need is to be interested... But I ask you, what could be more interesting than understanding human action?!

I’ll see you in the next lesson.
