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

Adam Smith Read & Download ☆ 104 Usse en ligne Adam Smith ADAM SMITH Encyclopdia Universalis Adam Smith le pre de l'conomie politiue ualification bien connue et ui sous une forme concise a le mrite de bien exprimer ce ue cette discipline lui a d ses vritables dbuts c'est dire dans le dernier tiers du xviiie sicle mais ualification insuffisamment prci. Wealth of Nations published in 1776 per David Hume it reuries too much thought to reach a wide audience p 1Per Adam Smith but the indolence of old age tho I struggle violently against it I feel coming fast upon me and whether I shall ever be able to finish either is extremely uncertain He was then sixty two and felt he had become an old man p 3 a man in other words who loved correspondence for its own sake and regarded it as a form of conversation that mattered almost as much as the company of friends p 5 coherent account of the origins of our capacity for language by invoking the power of the imagination and the love of improvement p 70 theory of improvement developed p 96Hume everything in this world is purchased by labor and our passions are the only causes of labor the wealth and uality of its labor force and not in terms of its gold and silver reserves p 141 a taught animal Pride and gullibility fed by fashion and the never ending hunger for social approval had made him a slave to social convention unrecognizable even to himself The only consolation Mandeville had been able to offer was that most people were so gullible that they failed to understand what was happening to them p 142Curiosity allures the wise vanity the foolish and pleasure both p 144Rousseau had replied that men were naturally indolent and had only been truly at one with themselves in the savage state when they had been free to indulge their indolence by simple living p 148 our senses will never inform us of what our bother suffers p 149Even those who think they know each other will soon learn that the only access they have to each other s minds is via the perilously uncertain route of the imagination p 150Smith Man is an anxious animal p 152Do they imagine that their stomach is better or their sleep sounder in a palace than in a cottage The contrary has been so often observed and indeed is so very obvious though it had never been observed that there is no body ignorant of it p 153To be observed to be attended to to be taken notice of with sympathy complacency and approbation are all the advantages which we can propose to derive from it human life p 154 dependent on the opinions of others desist from committing fragrantly unjust acts out of fear of the social as well as the legal conseuences p 154 that sentiment which is properly called remorse of all the sentiments which can enter the human breast the most dreadful p 156 Rousseau once famously remarked that while men were born free everywhere they are in chains life of virtue lived under the direction of the impartial spectator p 157Theory of Moral Sentiments was an essay on which the author himself set a high value p 166when you apply to a brewer or butcher you do not address his humanity but his self love p177 It is a reminder that the Theory of Moral Sentiments the Wealth of Nations and indeed Smith s entire project for a modern science of man were built on the foundations of the Enlightenment s uintessential assault on religion p 190It is not from the benevolence of the butcher the brewer or the baker that we expect our dinner but from their regard to their own interest Civil government so far as it is instituted for the security of property in in reality instituted for the defense of the rich against the poor or of those who have some property against those who have none at all p 217uesnay agriculture was the mother of all good p 218 he intends only his own gain and he is in this as in many other cases led by an invisible hand to promote an end which was no part of his intention p 230 the great enlightened dictum that Science is the great antidote to the poison of enthusiasm and superstition p 233 An instructed and intelligent people are always decent and orderly than an ignorant and stupid one dissipate that melancholy and gloomy humor which is almost always the nurse of popular superstition and enthusiasm p 234The Wealth of Nations is the greatest and most enduring monument to the intellectual culture of the Scottish Enlightenment p 137Reading of it the Wealth of Nations reuires so much Attention and the Public is disposed to give so little p 241Hume told Smith after losing weight that I shall probably disappear altogether p 241Rochefoucault a Wind though it extinguishes a Candle blows up a fire p 243he had a capacity for self abstraction p 260 the sense of duty I consider my tenure of this life as extremely precarious died 17 July 1790 p 269 we judge people we believe to be following an internally directed sense of morality uite differently from the way in which we judge thosASe who seem to be responding to the opinions of those around them who are acting in a way which will avoid the disapproval of others p 270AS shows that man s industriousness ingenuity and love of improvement were a response to indigence and necessity p 171 each nation ought not only to endeavor itself to excel but from the love of mankind to promote instead of obstructing the excellence of its neighbors These are all proper objects of national emulation not of national prejudice or envy like Solon when he cannot establish the best system of laws he will endeavor to establish the est that the people can bear p 273 the mind was in the last resort the Empire of the Imagination p 280Philosophy s roots Smith suggested lay in the psychological need to explain the unexpected to soothe imagination and to restore the mind to a state of cognitive order and tranuility p 283
