Hi, Praxgirl here.

Hej, Praxgirl här.

I study the logic of human action, a science called Praxeology.

Jag studerar logiken bakom mänskligt agerande, en vetenskap som kallas Praxeolgi.

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

Praxeologi är ett sätt att förstå det syftet bakom människors beteende. Den förklarar för oss de universella lagarna bakom agerande.

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.

Historiskt har Praxeologi vuxit fram ur nationalekonomi då det förstods att ekonomi inte förklara blott marknadsfenomen utan även människans naturliga beslutsmekanism.

Now you’re asking yourself, why should I want to study Praxeology?

Nu frågar du dig själv, varför skulle jag vilja studera Praxeologi?

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!

Det skulle kunna frågas om alla vetenskaper såsom kemi och fysik. Men svaret är enkelt: på grund av dess användbarhet i att förklara världen vi lever i!

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.

Fysik kan tala om för mig att det är farligt att röra en fasledare. Men om jag behöver hantera ledaren så förklarar det också för mig att jag kan göra det på ett säker sätt genom att använda ett isolerande material såsom gummi.

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

Quick example: do you know anyone who enjoys Do-it-yourself projects? Imagine if

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.
