Adam Smith’s Theory of Moral Sentiments (1759) has been attracting increasing attention for several years now. Working from the moral philosophy of Adam Smith, who is known principally as a political economist, it is possible to develop a many-facetted contribution to present-day debates (liberalism, business ethics). This volume, with papers by renowned moral philosophers and Adam Smith scholars, documents the various perspectives from which Adam Smith’s moral philosophy is of particular interest today.
