The Adam Smith Problem: Human Nature and Society in The by Dogan Göçmen

By Dogan Göçmen

This can be the 1st scholarly paintings to deal exclusively with the ‘Adam Smith problem’, specifically the obvious contradiction among Adam Smith’s most famed works, the speculation of ethical Sentiments and the character and explanations of the Wealth of countries. because the 1840s students have wondered over and tried to give an explanation for the truth that those works provide essentially varied and contradictory thoughts of human nature. during this radical new technique Dogan Göçmen makes a massive contribution to the controversy. Accepting that Smith does certainly recommend diverse and sundry rules, he argues that the moral place articulated within the thought of ethical Sentiments should be, and used to be meant through Smith to be, utilized as a foundation for criticising the industrial society analysed within the Wealth of countries. Göçmen argues that this moral place issues to the nature of a terrific destiny society, Adam Smith’s Utopia, a society within which its social parts are thoroughly in sympathy - and for that reason harmonious - with one another.
