About this book


Adam Smith in Context delves into some central components of Smith's thought, especially his moral philosophy, and challenges some commonly shared views. It combines philosophical, historical, methodological and economic issues of Smith's legacy, uncovering original interpretations of what Smith really said. It is an important contribution for those interested in Adam Smith as it proposes a different reading of his works by investigating the classical sources of his moral thought and the influences of his own time.
