Anniversary of Smith's Theory Of Moral Sentiments

Dr Eamonn Butler, Director of the Adam Smith Institute, posts a tribute to Adam Smith today, the anniversary of the publication of his Theory Of Moral Sentiments in 1759, while he was teaching at Glasgow University.

His tribute is entitled ‘An Ethical Anniversary’. I post a single paragraph from it (you should visit the ASI Blog to read the rest):

On this day in 1759, Adam Smith published The Theory Of Moral Sentiments. A work on ethics, it made his name and his fortune, and gave him the time and the freedom to spend much of the next decade and a half writing the iconoclastic Wealth Of Nations, for which he is best known today.”

I have posted a short comment on the ASI Blog, which you can read when you visit it here.
