  • Re: Sociology, Critical Theorists of the Frankfurt school, neo marxists

    I think comparing sociology to fiat money is accurate. Fiat money exists because of compulsory monopoly of the mint, Sociology(or most of it anyway) exists because of state monopoly over intellectuals.

  • Sociology, Critical Theorists of the Frankfurt school, neo marxists

    What do you think of the field of sociology? Are they worth getting into? I took a class in sociology and I didn't learn much. For one it felt like Marxist indoctrination and the topics that were not politically charged didn't seem to be based on any solid theoretical grounding. My sociology...

  • Re: Praxeology

    [quote user="I. Ryan"] [quote user="AJ"] I don't think the other fields have been developed much yet. Anything that can be studied in terms of human action can in theory be a field of praxeology. I have seen psychological action and ethical action be referred to as possible fields...

  • Re: Sociology and Economics

    Your question can really be answered on multiple levels. It all depends what you mean when you say 'sociology' and 'economics'. Since you are contemplating majoring in sociology, I will, in this reply, consider both terms in the more mainstream scope. As much as I love Ludwig von Mises...

  • The end of economics?

    Marginal Revolution has an interesting article: http://www.marginalrevolution.com/marginalrevolution/2008/03/a-million-years.html They argue that we more or less know everything we wanted to know about markets and therefore the next big question is to ask what conditions cause the emergence of a more...
