The axiom all the action is rational is deductively implied by the concept that individuals deliberate act to decrease in personal distress. Such provisions have generated controversy, is the methodological field and the epistemological field. At first, the criticisms are developed which is conventionally external praxeology critical, therefore, by methodological differences. In the second, the challenges consist of the axioms of rationality and logical deductions under the praxeological methodology. So, are called internal criticism of praxeology Mises. Here, we present such concepts and differences, concluding that the road to praxeology is not necessarily in its refutation, and yes, the evolution towards an essentially conceptualized by Bruce Caldwell pluralistic methodological way.</p> 2018-04-19T01:28:39+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## A Brazilian Adam Smith 2018-04-23T15:35:33+00:00 Paulo Roberto Almeida <p>Adam Smith’s seminal work, The Wealth of Nations, was introduced to Brazilian readers by an autodidatic “economist”, José da Silva Lisboa, at the beginning of the 19th century. The paper intends to reconstruct the reception of Smith’s ideas in Brazil (and Portugal), through the early works of José da Silva Lisboa. He was a remarkable intellectual, liberal by instinct besides a government official, who was largely responsible for the “economic opening” of Brazilian ports to foreign trade (decreed by the Portuguese Regent, Prince D. João, in 1808, at his arrival in Brazil). He was honored with the title of Viscount of Cairu (who became the patron of the Brazilian economists in the 20th century). He translated, incorporated, copied and transformed many Smithian ideas in his books (published in Portugal and Brazil, by Imprensa Régia), adapting them to a colonial economy and a backward agricultural environment. He suggested, among other original features, the existence of a fourth factor of production (besides land, labor and capital): knowledge, which could be considered an anticipation of modern conceptual evolution in economic thinking.</p> 2018-04-17T00:27:14+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Self-ownership and the Libertarian Ethic 2018-04-23T15:35:33+00:00 Gustavo Poletti Kaesemodel <p>The concept of self-ownership is intrinsect related to the concept of individual liberty and is a keystone for the libertarian ethic. In times when individual liberty is constantly violated by postivistic legislations, this paper objective is to present the libertarian ethics fundamentals, its evolution through the last 50 years and how it can be an important tool to protect individual rights. After the most important concepts and fundamentals analysis, libertarian ethics is challenged by the most relevant critics presented during this time, illustrating how they contributed to its development and highlighting points that are not fully developed or validated. Finally, the paper introduces a discussion on everyday life topics related to self-ownership, demonstrating how individual liberty is constantly violated by major contitutions worldwide and how they should be settled by libertarian author’s proposals, protecting private property and preventing agressionintiation.</p> 2018-04-06T00:57:31+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Editorial v.6 n.1 (2018) 2018-03-28T13:43:19+00:00 Adriano de Carvalho Paranaiba <p>Editorial v.6 n.1 (2018) video of this first edition Ahead of Print</p> 2018-03-22T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
