Description The present text exposes the Misesian conception on the differences between the methods of the natural sciences and the sciences of human action, or praxiology. It rejects the empiricism applied to the latter insofar as the complexity of human phenomena results in the inexistence of constants from which empirical laws and exact predictions could be obtained. It criticizes the demand for accurate predictions that disregard the impossibility of eradicating the uncertainty inherent in the sphere of action. The text then rejects the relevance of the Popperian demarcation criterion applied to praxiology, reaffirming that the laws of a praxiological nature are aprioristic, derived deductively from the recognition of the nature of the human mind.
O presente texto expõe a concepção misesiana sobre as diferenças entre os métodos das ciências naturais e as ciências da ação humana, ou praxiologia. Rejeita o empirismo aplicado as estas últimas na medida em que a complexidade dos fenômenos humanos resulta na inexistência de constantes a partir das quais leis empíricas e previsões exatas poderiam ser obtidas. Critica a demanda por previsões exatas que desconsideram a impossibilidade de erradicar a incerteza inerente à esfera da ação. O texto rejeita, em seguida, a relevância do critério de demarcação popperiano aplicado à praxiologia, reafirmando que as leis de natureza praxiológica são apriorísticas, derivadas dedutivamente a partir do reconhecimento da natureza da mente humana.
