Murray N. Rothbard: In Memoriam edited by Llewellyn H. Rockwell Jr.

Status: One Round of QC (09.19.2013)


Fix Notes:

Page 34: par. 1: "Social Sciences" is missing italic

In the area of philosophy, in his book Individualism and the Philosophy of the Social Sciences and in many articles, Murray dealt with problems such as the logical nature of economics versus history and sociology, with the theory of measurement, and the foundations of probability theory.

Page 34: par. 1: "Ethics of Liberty" is missing italic

In The Ethics of Liberty he presented and defended against all conceivable objections, a fully worked out ethical system: a libertarian law code of individual liberty, private property, contractualism, and strict liability.

Page 85: par. 2: "Great Depression" is missing italic

After becoming a student I began to devour every word he wrote. I was stunned by the brilliance of his revisionist history in Conceived in Liberty, America's Great Depression, and his articles on pietism, progressivism, and the world wars.

Page 96: par. 1: entirety

And while the breadth and diversity of his writing were truly astounding, they in no way reflect all the things that Murray took an interest in—and when Murray took an interest in something, he mastered it in its entierty.

Page 98: par. 2: contributed

He also contirubted importantly in developing his political philosophy on the basis of natural law and natural rights in his Ethics of Liberty—an important explication of his political philosophy.

Page 100: par. 4: seemed

Murray always had plenty of time, it semed, to talk with all students regarding all of their questions, and yet he was the most prolific writer, so that it is hard to imagine that he was limited to the same number of hours per day that all of us are.

Page 102: bottom par.: solution

I proposed a free market soluton to a problem, while the other Republicans agreed with me that it would be nice if we could find a free-market solution, they always stated that the 1929 Depression proved that the free market was unstable and could not work without government regulation and intervention.

Page 103: bottom par.: Institute

When the Mises Insitute was founded by Lew Rockwell in 1982, I began to serve immediately as its Vice Chairman and on its Board of Visitors.

Page 110: second par. from bottom: defines

The taxing power efines the state in the same way that theft defines a robber.
