Editorial Reviews


'While much attention has been given to The Wealth of Nations, Adam Smith's companion book on The Theory of Moral Sentiments is often ignored or dismissed as incompatible with the central message of the more famous work. While a number of economists and other social scientists have criticized such stances, this collection of essays brings together a number of fresh and important perspectives on Smith's relatively neglected volume. Smith's ideas on moral sentiments and human nature are placed in the intellectual context of his time, particularly regarding the Enlightenment and contemporary attitudes to religion. The result is an innovative and highly stimulating collection of essays, which should help to make Smith's ideas much less dismal than some economists have rendered them.'- Geoffrey M. Hodgson, University of Hertfordshire, UK'This collection significantly enriches our knowledge of Smith's The Theory of Moral Sentiments, enhances our understanding of how TMS relates to The Wealth of Nations and Lectures on Jurisprudence, and presents new insights into the relation of Smith's ideas to the Enlightenment. As bonuses, it indicates how seemingly contradictory ideas were temporarily and variably freshly combined, and the ideational path formed by such combinations. The book will undoubtedly lead to further interpretive controversy but it should also lead to fresh combinations and new agreements, however temporary, as contemporary views change in similar ways.'- Warren J. Samuels, Michigan State University, US --Warren J. Samuels, Michigan State University, US
