"One of the implications that can be logically deduced from the irrefutably true axiom of human action is that human action is purposeful (or conscious) action — action that is directed at attaining certain ends. This insight is essential for fully understanding Mises's reconstruction of economics as a formal-logical science (praxeology, as he called it), and all the implications that can be deduced from it."
