Abstract:

In this, the first full-scale biography of Adam Smith for a hundred years, Ian Simpson Ross brings his subject into historical light as a thinker and author by examining his family circumstance, education, career, and social and intellectual circle, including David Hume and Francois Quesnay. Smith's life is revealed through his correspondence, archival documents, the reports of contemporaries, and the record of his publications. This is the life of a Scottish moral philosopher whose legacy of thought concerns and affects us all. Its lively and informed account will appeal to those interested in the social and intellectual milieu of the eighteenth century, and in Scottish history. Economists and philosophers will find much to read about the history of their disciplines, supported by full documentation.
