Return to the Classics to Discuss "The Essential Adam Smith"-CANCELLED

Monday, March 30, 2020 - 7:00pm
Massman Hall, room 241
Scotland-born Adam Smith (1723-90), hailed as the founding father of economics and credited as the founding father of capitalism, was the author of two published books: The Theory of Moral Sentiments (1759) and An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations (1776). Smith’s writings delved into psychological observations of human nature, morality, and economics that influenced peers such as Charles Darwin (1809-82) and brought him acclaim during his lifetime and beyond. The Essential Adam Smith, edited by Robert L Heilbroner and Laurence J. Malone, reduces Smith’s writings to their “essential core” and provides a brief introduction and overview of his life. Join us for an intimate discussion of this book over refreshments. This event is cancelled.
