Editorial Reviews

“One of the truly outstanding books in the intellectual
history of the world…A global manifesto of profound
significance to the interdependent world in which we live. It
is indeed a book of amazing reach and contemporary
-Amartya Sen, from the Introduction

From the Back Cover
“In The Theory of Moral Sentiments, Smith assigned himself a
difficult and dangerous task: to establish for educated men
in an increasingly revolutionary age the reasonableness of
morality and the necessity of the fruits of virtue –
illustrated by the wisdom of the classical authors of
antiquity. This book, Adam Smith’s first, is, then, proof to
skeptics of the importance of morality; and an antidote to
those who think that free-market economics can be divorced
from a moral society.”–BOOK JACKET.
