Description

In the two centuries since the death of Adam Smith much has been written about his ideas and his works. A comprehensive hagiogrophy has developed which now surrounds, and even obscures, the author of "Wealth of Nations". The contributors of this book aim to take a fresh look at and a careful consideration of the cogency and value of Smith's work. Writers in the various fields describe and assess topics from the range of his thought - astronomy, economics, jurisprudence, rhetoric and moral philosophy. The editors take into account the entire range of Smith's interests and recreate the context in which he worked.
