On Moral Sentiments

Contemporary Responses to Adam Smith

Reeder, John, editor

Spanning over one hundred years of critical responses, the collection includesthree different sections: the initial reply from Smith’s friends David Hume, Edmund Burke, and William Robertson; the more considered opinions put forward by Smith’s contemporaries, such as Lord Kames, Thomas Reid, Adam Ferguson, and Dugald Stewart; and the later nineteenth-century, largely critical, views expressed by a new generation of philosophers.
