About Dr. Karl Gabriel Pribram



Karl Přibram (22 December 1877 – 15 July 1973), also known as “Karl Pribram”, was an Austrian-born economist. He is most noted for his work in labor economics, in industrial organization, and in the history of economic thought. Přibram analyzed post-scholastic economic thought into three competing traditions: a nominalist tradition, which has typically provided foundations for liberal prescriptions an intuitionist tradition, which formed an intellectual infrastructure for fascistic prescriptions a tradition of Hegelian dialectics, which formed the intellectual infrastructure for Marxist Communism Karl Pribram died in Washington, D.C., in 1973. His papers are held in the German and Jewish Intellectual Émigré Collection of the M.E. Grenander Department of Special Collections and Archives of the libraries of the University at Albany, the State University of New York. [edit]Positions
