Nick Phillipson on Adam Smith on What Human Beings Are Like”

"Adam Smith, the great thinker of the Scottish Enlightenment, is best known as an economist, and in particular for his idea of the 'invisible hand' which operates to bring about beneficial results that may not have been sought by the people trading. But even his economic thinking is perhaps best understood as part of a broader philosophical project of a science of human beings. Nicholas Phillipson, his acclaimed biographer, discusses Adam Smith's view of human beings in this episode on the Philosophy Bites and Spoken Word podcasts.
