Adam Smith: An Enlightened Life (The Lewis Walpole Series in Eighteenth-Century Culture and History) by Nicholas Phillipson

Nicholas Phillipsons intellectual biography of Adam Smith shows that Smith saw himself as philosopher rather than an economist. Phillipson shows Smiths famous works were a part of a larger scheme to establish a Science of Man, which was to encompass law, history, and aesthetics as well as economics and ethics. Phillipson explains Adam Smiths part in the rapidly changing intellectual and commercial cultures of Glasgow and Edinburgh at the time of the Scottish Enlightenment. Above all Phillipson explains how far Smiths ideas developed in dialog with his closest friend David Hume.--Publishers description.
