“Once in a great while, a book appears that both embodies and dramatically extends centuries of accumulated wisdom in a particular discipline, and, at the same time, radically challenges the intellectual and political consensus of the day. Human Action by Ludwig von Mises is such a book, and more: a comprehensive treatise on economic science that would lay the foundation for a massive shift in intellectual opinion that is still working itself out fifty years after publication.”
So begins the introduction to the 1998 scholar’s edition of Mises’s Human Action, written by Jeffrey Herbener, Hans-Hermann Hoppe, and Joseph Salerno. These words still ring true today.
We are excited to invite you to join us at the Mises Institute in Auburn, Alabama, for our Human Action Conference celebrating the 75th anniversary of Ludwig von Mises’s masterpiece. This pioneering work serves as the very foundation of the Mises Institute, which recently marked its 40th anniversary. After four decades of scholarship, events, and educational programs, the Mises Institute’s mission remains rooted in the ideas of Ludwig von Mises.
Mises Institute Senior Fellows, Fellows, and Associated Scholars will deliver presentations on the significance of Human Action. Returning to his intellectual home for the first time since covid, Dr. Hans-Hermann Hoppe will deliver a keynote lecture. These thinkers’ contributions will be compiled into a commemorative volume in honor of Mises’s seminal work. Our confirmed speakers include
Paul F. Cwik
Thomas J. DiLorenzo
Jeffrey M. Herbener
Randall G. Holcombe
Jörg Guido Hülsmann
Peter G. Klein
Robert P. Murphy
Joseph T. Salerno
Timothy D. Terrell
Students and enthusiasts of Austrian economics are encouraged to attend. This conference is designed to be both informative and inspiring for all attendees, serving as a testament to the enduring and widespread legacy of Mises’s ideas.
Faculty registration is $285, early bird observer registration is $300. Each ticket includes an opening reception, two catered lunches, all sessions, a special 75th anniversary edition of Human Action, and the commemorative volume containing all the papers and lectures presented at this historic gathering.
