Write an essay of at least 3 pages (typed, double spaced, etc):
Consider these passages from Ludwig Von Mises’ human Action:
“The Human mind is not a tabula rasa [blank slate] on which the external events write their own history. It is equipped with a set of tools for grasping reality. Man acquitted these tools, i.e, the logical structure of his mind, in the course of his evolution form an amoeba to his present state, but these tools are logically prior to any experience.”
“The Ego is the unity of the acting being. It is unquestionably given and cannot be dissolved or conjured away by any reasoning or quibbling.”
“action is an attempt to substitute a more satisfactory state of affairs for a less satisfactory one. We call such a willfully induced alteration an exchange.”
“production is not something physical, material, and external; it is a spiritual and intellectual phenomenon.”
Explain how they express the radical subjectivism of Mises’ view, and through this constitute the individual not only as isolated, but also as an essentially economic being.
(remember Mises’ account of the two forms of exchange, autistic and interpersonal.)
