Essays in Honor of Hans-Hermann Hoppe

August 7, 2009 by

Hans-Hermann Hoppe is one of the most important scholars of our time. He has made pioneering contributions to sociology, economics, philosophy, and history. He is the dean of the present-day Austrian School of economics, and is famous as a libertarian philosopher. He and his writings have inspired scholars all over the world to follow in his footsteps and to provide a scientific foundation for individual freedom and a free society. The following pages are a modest attempt to honor the occasion of Professor Hoppe’s 60th birthday. The contributors are former students, colleagues, and collaborators, united in admiration for, and friendship with, the laureate. FULL ARTICLE

…and don’t forget the inimitable delivery. hoppe’s german accent is just a perfect match for his droll humour.

No mention of Argumentation Ethics? Argumentation Ethics is the most rigorous defense of private property ever penned. Isn’t this by far his most important contribution?

I am presently reading Henry Hazlitt’s “The Foundations of Morality” and find a number of similarities to Jean Piaget’ epistomology, Ayn Rand’s objectivism and, of course, Ludwig v. Mises epistomology. What frustrates me most is the range specifity of most thinkers, the inability or refusal to think outside of the box. At any rate, a look at Jean Piaget’s developmental psychology seems to me a good starting point for study of epistomology. Correct me, if I have misunderstood.

Re the question about argumentation ethics: as one of the world’s most ardent supporters of argumentation ethics, I can assure you this was not intended to slight it. We meant to reference it with this line: “a new praxeological approach to political philosophy,” but perhaps should have been more explicit. I realized this after the book had gone to press. However the book is chock-full of discussion about and references to his argumentation ethics.

“He is the dean of the present-day Austrian School of economics”

Really? I’m sure a few would dispute such a claim.
