Action Axiom

Definition: An action axiom is an axiom that embodies a criterion for recommending action. Action axioms are of the form "If a condition holds, then the following should be done".

This term is used in Murray Rothbard's Austrian Epistemology. It is basically a starting point, or the beginning of an action. It is explained better by Rothbard when he describes Mises' Praxeology, I believe it was in his book "Man, Economy, and the State".
