Ludwig Lachmann (1906–1990) was a German-born member of the Austrian School of economics. He studied at the London School of Economics in the 1930s, taught at the University of Wiwatersrand in South Africa, and wrote seminal material on Austrian capital theory.
Ludwig von Mises: "Only stilted pedants can conceive the idea that there are absolute norms to tell what is beautiful and what is not. They try to derive from the works of the past a code of rules with which, as they fancy, the writers and artists of the future should comply. But the genius does not cooperate with the pundit." - Theory and History
