The Looking Glass

  • Gavin Kennedy

Abstract

Smith asserts that we approve or disapprove of our conduct according to how we imagine others see, or are likely to see, our behaviour. In short, we try to anticipate the views of the ‘fair and impartial spectator’ and only approve of our conduct if it receives ‘the approbation of this supposed equitable judge.’ Otherwise we condemn and restrain it.1
