Synopsis

Almost everyone has heard of Adam Smith, founding father of modern economics and author of 'Wealth of Nations'. THere is, however, much more to him than this. This new introduction gives a crystal clear overview of the entirety of Smith's thought. It demonstrates how Smith's economic theories fit into a larger system of thought that encompasses moral philosophy, philosophy of science, legal and political theory, and aesthetics. Examining the central arguments of his major works, ranging from 'The Theory of Moral Sentiments' to his lectures on jurisprudence and beyond, Smith's thought is explained in its full intellectual and historical context.
