The Theory of Moral Sentiments, Paperback / softback Book

The Theory of Moral Sentiments Paperback / softback


Best known for his revolutionary free-market economics treatise The Wealth of Nations, Adam Smith was first and foremost a moral philosopher.

In his first book, The Theory of Moral Sentiments, he investigated the flip side of economic self-interest: the interest of the greater good.

Smith's classic work advances ideas about conscience, moral judgement and virtue that have taken on renewed importance in business and politics.
