RACIAL POLYLOGISM The claim that different races possess different logical structures of the mind overlooks the fact that reason works. ” To the extent that other organisms have risen above the instinctive behavior of animals, they necessarily must share the (successful) logic enjoyed by the white race. 5. POLYLOGISM AND UNDERSTANDING A much milder version of polylogism simply asserts that various classes or races share similar value judgments and historical understanding. Yet even this weaker claim ignores the heterogeneity within classes and races.
Yet Mises’s critique doesn’t end there. He spends countless pages in Human Action detailing the defects of polylogism. (2) Marxian polylogism is a very strong doctrine and should not be confused with superficially similar attitudes. Mises does not deny that people with different backgrounds may “think differently” about some issues. What he does deny is that such people’s minds operate according to different logical structures. Mises also is aware that certain groups can benefit from the perpetuation of faulty beliefs.
6. THE CASE FOR REASON Reason is an ultimate given, a nonrational fact; one cannot establish the validity of reason itself through logical argument. Yet it is man’s foremost tool in action, and distinguishes man from other animals. There can be no such thing as an irrational mode of thinking. To renounce reason and return to guidance by “instinct” would destroy the foundations of civilization. Why It Matters Mises considers it crucial to demolish the Marxist notion of polylogism. Without tackling this idea directly, the entire body of praxeology would rest on quicksand.
