Nicholas Phillipson ò 1 CHARACTERS

CHARACTERS ✓ Adam Smith Nicholas Phillipson ò 1 CHARACTERS Ks  The Wealth of Nations and The Theory of Moral Sentiments were part of one of the most ambitious projects of the Euruopean Enlightenment a grand “Science of Man that would encompass law history and aesthetics as well as economics and ethics and which was only half complete on Smith’s death in 1790Nick Phillipson reconstructs Smith’s intell. Though his name looms large as the founder of modern economic theory Adam Smith himself is in many ways a mysterious and unknowable figure Faced with the challenge of writing a biography of a man who left only a little correspondence and only two books Nicholas Phillipson provides a broader portrait of Adam Smith s intellectual world In doing so he sites Smith firmly within the context of the Scottish Enlightenment showing how he took the explorations of his teachers and colleagues most notably his close friend David Hume and used them to produce two of the seminal books of Western thought By adopting this approach Phillipson challenges the image of Smith as an absent minded academic and turns him instead into a dynamic teacher who was in contact with many of the leading intellectual and political lights of his day With his persuasive reinterpretation and and readable style Phillipson has produced what is likely to be the best account of Smith s life and times for decades to come and an essential read for anyone interested in learning about the origins and development of the ideas we still discuss today

This was a fine contextualizing biography I agree with the author that Adam Smith s life and works cannot be understood except in the milieu of the Scottish Enlightenment and Epictetian stoical philosophy Adam Smith was not promoting the intrinsic value of selfish competition but was instead writing a prescription for enlightened rulers to mold the forces of capitalism to the greatest benefit of the largest proportion of mankind This was a part of Smith s larger project to describe a philosophy of human interactions and manners and to divorce Smith s works from that project for one s own sectarian ends is to willfully understand it and to cheapen the life s work of this most influential of philosophers

    PDF/EPUB Adam Smith A masterful and extensively researched book which acts as a great introduction to literature of the enlightenment Some have accused the book of being overtly esoteric and thus inaccesible to those who are not schooled in the Age of Enlightenment or general 18th century philosophy For my part I would propound that it is rather than esoteric intelligently written and if anything likely to inspire any reader to further investigate
