Clearly this was written with a specialist in mind consciously or unconsciously There are a lot of things that Phillipson seems to assume you know which I don’t think a regular educated non philosophy major reader would know Some examples—He mentions than once that Smith was influenced philosophically by Euclidean geometry Now even though he states it influenced his method rather than his content it still is not self evident what that means How could the method of geometry translate to philosophy Then I kept coming across the word “police” which was clearly not being used as we use it I assumed that it must be an archaic meaning so I checked the dictionary and did an internet search to no avail Only after seeing this word used multiple times does the reader get to this passage on page 173 4 ““Both versions of the lectures culminated in a discussion of ‘police’ that self consciously used neologism he had probably first employed in Edinburgh to consider the problems involved in maintaining what he called the ‘cleanliness’ and internal security of the state and above all ‘cheapness or plenty or which is the same thing the most proper way of procuring wealth and abundance” Wouldn’t it have been nice if he had put this paragraph with the first time he mentions the wordHe also assumes a cultural historical knowledge at times such as when he cites an exchange between Samuel Johnson and Smith “Smith was proud of the new city centre although it was rash to commend it to Samuel Johnson in 1773 ‘Pray sir have you seen Brentford’ the surly sage replied” I don’t know about you but I didn’t get the jokeThis is not a bad book it was just a mismatch for me I found it dry and difficult to follow but I don’t think someone with a stronger philosophy background would have Be warned that it is very barely a standard biography since there is little information about Smith’s life It is much a biography of his intellectual life Now I usually like intellectual biographies but this one weighed too much on the side of ideas and not enough on the side of a life story Given the lack of information it might have been unavoidable Free read ☆ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF í Nicholas Phillipson

Although I must admit that I lack just too much knowledge about Adam's Smith life and his other mayor work The Theory of Moral Sentiments I did get the impression of understanding a little bit about Adam Smith's life and ideas I cannot deny that this book had a lot of research but at times it seems that it may had not been enough However I cannot deny what was said several times during the book Adam Smith was a very private person The fact that he burned most of his unfinished writings just seems to confirm this fact No author is to be blamed and their efforts should be considered A very notorious thing that may come to the reader's mind is the following the book may at times center itself too much on other people and even places or circumstances This is not a bad thing This book may give you a good idea of what the world was like for Adam Smith and those around him during the time of his life After reading this book I'll venture to say you'll think you know Adam Smith a little bit better and it may even surprise you My mayor critiue about this book is the at times poor chronology of events While the chapters are made to fit the chronology of his life the author will mention things that happened after the years in which the chapter is centered This may not disrupt you too much but could certainly have been improved That said it is not a big problem This book involved a lot of research and I am sure it reuired a lot of work This is a book I would recommend to others however I would also recommend you to read at the very least either the Theory of Moral Sentiments or as I did An Inuiry Into the Nature and Causes of The Wealth of Nations This latter is a book I wholeheartedly recommend
