On The Social Nature Of Rationality In Adam Smith And John Stuart Mill
The main purpose of this article is to stress the social nature of economic rationality in the works of Adam Smith and John Stuart Mill. As it will be suggested through some textual evidence, both thinkers believed that individuals and their actions depend on the social, cultural and moral frame inside which they operate. In the light of this, it is proposed to evaluate the potential impact of their ideas in the latest theoretical developments of economic rationality.
