162 books of Adam Smith

Adam Smith FRSE (baptised June 5, 1723 O.­S. / June 16 N.­S. – July 17, 1790) was a Scottish moral philosopher and a pioneering political economist. He is also the founder of economics. One of the key figures of the intellectual movement known as the Scottish Enlightenment, he is known primarily as the author of two treatises: The Theory of Moral Sentiments (1759), and An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations (1776). The latter was one of the earliest attempts to systematically study the historical development of industry and commerce in Europe, as well as a sustained attack on the doctrines of mercantilism. Smith's work helped to create the modern academic discipline of economics and provided one of the best-­known intellectual rationales for free trade, capitalism, and libertarianism. Adam Smith is now depicted on the back of the Bank of England ?­20 note.

Les plus grandes améliorations dans la puissance productive du travail, et la plus grande partie de l’habileté, de l’adresse,  de l’intelligence avec laquelle il est dirigé ou appliqué, sont dues, à ce qu’il semble, à la division du travail. On se fera plus aisément une idée des effets de la division du travail sur l’industrie générale de la société, si l’on observe  comment ces effets opèrent dans quelques manufactures particulières. On suppose communément que cette division est portée le plus  loin possible dans quelques-­unes des manufactures où se fabriquent des objets de peu de valeur. Ce n’est pas peut-­être que  réellement elle y soit portée plus loin que dans des fabriques plus importantes ; mais c’est que, dans les premières, qui sont  destinées à de petits objets demandés par un petit nombre de personnes, la totalité des ouvriers qui y sont employés est nécessairement  peu nombreuse, et que ceux qui sont occupés à chaque différente branche de l’ouvrage peuvent souvent . . .

Introduzione di Alessandro Roncaglia Contributi critici di Lucio Colletti, Claudio Napoleoni e Paolo Sylos Labini Traduzione integrale di Francesco Bartoli, Cristiano Camporesi e Sergio Caruso Nel maggio del 1776, circa duecentotrenta anni fa, si pubblicava La ricchezza delle nazioni, con cui Adam Smith fondava la moderna scienza economica: ancor prima del pieno dispiegarsi della rivoluzione industriale questo testo ha offerto alcune delle principali categorie di interpretazione della nascente società capitalistica (divisione del lavoro, definizione delle classi, valore-­lavoro) e straordinarie intuizioni sulla società borghese e sul suo evolversi. Non c’è nessuna questione di teoria e di politica economica che non sia stata in qualche modo almeno impostata ne La ricchezza delle nazioni, tanto che tutti gli sviluppi successivi del pensiero economico si trovano, magari allo stato embrionale, compresenti in questo libro fondamentale. Adam Smith (Kirkcaldy 1723 - Edimburgo 1790), . . .

Adam Smith (1723-­1790) was one of the brightest stars of the eighteenth-­century Scottish Enlightenment. was his most important book First published in London in March 1776, it had been eagerly anticipated by Smith’s contemporaries and became an immediate bestseller. That edition sold out quickly and others followed. Today, Smith’s rightfully claims a place in the Western intellectual canon. It is the first book of modern political economy, and still provides the foundation for the study of that discipline. But it is much more than that. Along with important discussions of economics and political theory, Smith mixed plain common sense with large measures of history, philosophy, psychology, sociology, and much else. Few texts remind us so clearly that the Enlightenment was very much a lived experience, a concern with improving the human condition in practical ways for real people. A masterpiece by any measure, remains a classic of world literature to be usefully enjoyed by readers today.
