The Review of Austrian Economics, 14:2/3, 111–117, 2001. c 2001 Kluwer Academic Publishers. Manufactured in The Netherlands. PETER BOETTKE AND ROGER KOPPL Schutz’ ¨ s Early Life and Career Alfred Schutz ¨ (1899–1959) was born into fin-de-siecle ` Vienna. The old order was falling apart. The democratically elected mayor, Karl Lueger was an open anti-Semite. Conflicts over language rights, especially for Czechs, broke the system of constitutional monarchy in 1900, when the empire reverted to “enlightened absolutism” (Schorske 1981: p. 236). Vienna was fast becoming, in the words of Karl Kraus, a “research laboratory for world destruction” (Monk 1990: 3–27). Political collapse of the empire came with World War One.
