Adam Smith is well recognized as a forefather of modem economics but in recent years scholars have been exploring anew the multidisciplinary nature of his writings. The Adam Smith Review provides a unique forum for interdisciplinary debate on all aspects of Adam Smith's works, his place in history, and the significance of his writings for the modem world. It is the only publication of its kind and is aimed at facilitating debate between scholars working across the humanities and social sciences, thus emulating the transdisciplinary reach of the Enlightenment world which Smith helped to shape. The second volume of this refereed series contains contributions from a multidisciplinary range of specialists, including Jean-Pierre Dupuy, Samuel Fleischacker, Charles Griswold, Elias Khalil, Catherine Labio, Brendan Long, James Otteson, Ian Simpson Ross, Roberto Scazzieri, Eric Schliesser and Jeffrey Young, who discuss such themes as: * Adam Smith's moral theory and the theory of choice * Adam Smith and the literary turn * the unfinished nature of Smith's oeuvre * the relation between Adam Smith's moral philosophy and economics
