    A really good read this is well written deeply informed and often surprising intellectual biography of the world’s first great free marketer Phillipson argues Smith can best be understood as part of a team with his close friend David Hume that sought to create not a science of economics but a science of man that sought to

    After just re reading How Adam Smith Can Change Your Life An Unexpected Guide to Human Nature and Happiness and before diving into Smith's The Theory of Moral Sentiments this was a very helpful intellectual biography of Smith Thanks to Amy W for the recommendation
