Praxeology is a framework for understanding the purposeful behavior of human beings. It gives us the universal laws of action.

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

Historically, Praxeology grew out of Economics, when it was realized that economic logic didn’t just explain prices and other market phenomena, but also the nature of all human decision making.

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.

The same could be asked of all other sciences such as Chemistry or Physics. But the answer is pretty clear: because of their usefulness in explaining the world we live in!

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!

Physics can tell me why touching a live wire is dangerous. But if I need to handle that wire, it also tells me that I can safely do so, using an insulating material such as rubber.

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.

Likewise, Praxeology gives us the tools to think about human action beyond just what is seen.

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

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.
