"In the two centuries since the death of Adam Smith, much has been written about his ideas and his works: a comprehensive hagiography has developed which now surrounds, and perhaps even obscures, the author of the WEALTH OF NATIONS." "In ADAM SMITH REVIEWED the contributors take a fresh look at the cogency and value of Smith's work. Respected writers from the different disciplines describe and reconsider Smith's treatment of topics from the full and remarkable range of his interests - astronomy, aesthetics, economics, jurisprudence, rhetoric, moral philosophy. By acknowledging the breadth of the scope, and by recreating the context in which he worked, the editors have brought together a volume which will do much to remove some of times accretions, allowing Smith to be seen less as an icon of economic theory and more as a consistently interesting and provoking thinker."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
