Understand the mind that created The Wealth of Nations! In Adam Smith's first major work, he comprehensively explores morality and what it means to be a good person, through sympathetic examination of ethics, virtue, liberty, individual rights, and much more. First published in 1759, it remains tremendously relevant and valuable today, not only on its own merits as a Understand the mind that created The Wealth of Nations! In Adam Smith's first major work, he comprehensively explores morality and what it means to be a good person, through sympathetic examination of ethics, virtue, liberty, individual rights, and much more. First published in 1759, it remains tremendously relevant and valuable today, not only on its own merits as a readable and thorough exploration of human nature but as a priceless insight into the philosophical foundation on which the bible of economics, The Wealth of Nations, was built. This University of Life edition is newly indexed, and illustrated with scenes of the Scottish Englightenment. This is not a facsimille edition or a low-quality reprint; it has been newly typeset for a modern audience, at a large text size, for your reading pleasure. Note that this heirloom-quality edition is over four hundred pages long, whereas other, low-quality editions are around three hundred pages due to their small, uncomfortable text sizes. About the Series: The University of Life Library was founded to publish a uniform collection of beautiful, heirloom-quality volumes of the great works of politics, philosophy, economics, science and fiction, the reading of which could provide all people not only with great enjoyment but, at minimal expense, with the benefits of a traditional, classical education. The Library’s titles are chosen to illustrate, reinforce, and promote further inquiry into those concepts and values that originated in the civilizations of ancient Greece and Rome and, being expanded and improved-upon by the greatest minds of Europe and the Americas over many centuries, particularly during the Enlightenment, form the bedrock of Western civilization. Being the embodiment of the virtues enabling the creation of the United States of America, that nation most influenced by the Enlightenment’s illumination, and founded upon its precepts, each title opens with an illustration of Columbia, based on John Gast’s iconic 1872 painting, American Progress. Additionally, each title is illustrated with related scenes, and non-fiction titles are furnished with an extensive index of concepts, key phrases, people and places. We hope our editions can provide entertainment, education and inspiration to the young and mature alike. We strive to provide a collection of well-loved, widely-varied works that will take pride of place on the bookshelves of families and businesses for generations to come. “The true university of these days is a collection of books” - Thomas Carlyle About the Author: Adam Smith FRSA (16 June 1723 – 17 July 1790) was a Scottish economist, philosopher, and author. He was a moral philosopher, a pioneer of political economy, and was a key figure during the Scottish Enlightenment era. He is best known for two classic works: The Theory of Moral Sentiments (1759), and An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations (1776). The latter, usually abbreviated as The Wealth of Nations, is considered his magnum opus and the first modern work of economics. Smith laid the foundations of classical free market economic theory.
