But Selgin, who actually understands Mises’ writings enough (and is honest with himself enough) to not call himself an “Austrian…”
Maybe there’s unstated context behind that statement, although it directly follows a paragraph where Danny subtly criticizes Steven Horwitz’ ascribing of strict a priorism to a caste of ‘internet Austrians’ — so please, fill me in. But, apparently, in order to be a ‘true’ Austrian you must strictly adhere to the Misesian doctrine of strict theoretical a priorism, as if L.v. Mises were the ‘end all, be all’ of the Austrian school. Danny even goes as far as accusing those who still call themselves Austrian, yet stray away from praxeology, of intellectual dishonesty.
Give me a break.
