The foundation for a general system of morals this work is a landmark in the history of moral and political thought Readers familiar with Adam Smith from i The Wealth of Nations i will find this earlier book a revelation Although the author is often misrepresented as a calculating rationalist who advises the pursuit of self interest in the marketplace regardless of the human cost he was also interested in the human capacity for benevolence as i The Theory of Moral Sentiments i amply demonstrates br The greatest prudence Smith suggests may lie in following economic self interest in order to secure the basic necessities This is only the first step however toward the much higher goal of achieving a morally virtuous life Smith elaborates upon a theory of the imagination inspired by the philosophy of David Hume His reasoning takes Hume s logic a step further by proposing a more sophisticated notion of sympathy leading to a series of highly original theories involving conscience moral judgment and virtue br Smith s legacy consists of his reconstruction of the Enlightenment idea of a moral or social science that embraces both political economy and the theory of law and government His articulate expression of his philosophy continues to inspire and challenge modern readers, No description available, Originally delivered in the form of lectures at Glasgow Adam Smith s The Wealth of Nations Books I III laid the foundations of economic theory in general and classical economics in particular and this Penguin Classics edition is edited with an introduction and notes by Andrew Skinner br br The publication of i The Wealth of Nations i in coincided with America s Declaration of Independence and with this landmark treatise on political economy Adam Smith paved the way for modern capitalism arguing that a truly free market fired by competition yet guided as if by an invisible hand to ensure justice and equality was the engine of a fair and productive society Books I III of i The Wealth of Nations i examine the division of labour as the key to economic growth by ensuring the interdependence of individuals within society They also cover the origins of money and the importance of wages profit rent and stocks but the real sophistication of his analysis derives from the fact that it encompasses a combination of ethics philosophy and history to create a vast panorama of society br br This edition contains an analytical introduction offering an in depth discussion of Smith as an economist and social scientist as well as a preface further reading and explanatory notes, This carefully annotated selection features the main analysis of the operation of an economic system the introductory chapter of the great attack on mercantilism and portions of the analysis of the functions of the state Books I IV and V Edited by George J Stigler this useful volume includes an introduction and a bibliography
