Book Description

Adam Smith’s contribution to economics is well-recognised but in recent years scholars have been exploring anew the multidisciplinary nature of his works. The Adam Smith

Adam Smith’s contribution to economics is well-recognized but in recent years scholars have been exploring anew the multidisciplinary nature of his works. The Adam Smith Review provides a unique forum for interdisciplinary debate on all aspects of Adam Smith's works, his place in history, and the significance of his writings for the modern world. It is aimed at facilitating debate between scholars working across the humanities and social sciences, thus emulating the transdisciplinary reach of the Enlightenment world which Smith helped to shape.

The third volume of this refereed series contains contributions from a multidisciplinary range of specialists, including Anthony Brewer, Alexandra Hyard, Charles G. Leathers and J. Patrick Raines, F.P. Lock, D.D. Raphael, Pedro N. Teixeira, Gloria Vivenza, Jack Russell Weinstein, and Donald Winch, who discuss such themes as:

· the influence of the Glasgow Edition of the Works and Correspondence of

Adam Smith

· interpreting the ‘man of system’ in the sixth edition of The Theory of Moral


· Adam Smith and education

· Adam Smith’s economics
