In this article, we will attempt to demonstrate that the Austrian method of dealing with both theory and history is informed by its perspective on uncertainty as the core concept uniting the various characterizations of Austrian thought.  Furthermore, we will argue that the Austrian School, among modern schools of thought, possesses the most realistic perspective on uncertainty and its role in the functioning of the economic system.
