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.
