Adam Smith's Lost Legacy

Kennedy, Gavin
ISBN:
9781403947895

In this accessible book, Gavin Kennedy takes a fresh look at Adam Smith's moral philosophy and its links to his political economy and his lectures on jurisprudence. The book provides a new analysis of Wealth of Nations, and argues that Adam Smith's intellectual legacy was coopted in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries by economists pursuing agendas that Smith did not advocate. It also provides a new explanation for the main mysteries about Smith's later life.
