Para ler Adam Smith: novas abordagens [Reading Adam Smith: new approaches]


  • Hugo E. A. da Gama Cerqueira



A new comprehension of Adam Smith's writings arose in the last years. These studies emphasized the political and ethical dimensions of his work and its connection with the eighteenth-century context. This article reviews the historical reception of Smith's works and discusses the recent literature about the relation between his moral philosophy and political economy.
