Profile of Adam Smith. The original depiction of Smith was created in 1787 by James Tassie in the form of an enamel paste medallion. Smith did not usually sit for his portrait, so a considerable number of engravings and busts of Smith were made not from observation but from the same enamel medallion produced by Tassie, an artist who could convince Smith to sit.

Indhold/Contents:

 

 

****

Det er ikke på grund af slagterens, ølbryggerens eller bagerens godgørenhed, at vi forventer at få mad på bordet, men fordi det er i deres egen interesse. Vi henvender os ikke til deres menneskekærlighed, men til deres selviskhed …

It is not from the benevolence of the butcher, the brewer, or the baker, that we can expect our dinner, but from their regard to their own interest. We address ourselves, not to their humanity but to their self-love …

Adam Smith: Moralfilosof og nationaløkonom. Af Claus Bratt Østergaard (Informations Forlag, 2015, 336 sider). “Bogens hensigt er at sammenfatte de væsentlige pointer, temaer og diskussioner i de to meget forskellige værker, der på hver deres måde (den ene økonomisk, den anden moralsk) samlet set udgør Adam Smiths samfundsfilosofi.”

Teorien om de moralske følelser. Af Adam Smith (Informations Forlag, 2014, 423 sider). “Med Teorien om de moralske følelser præsenteres et vigtigt europæisk hovedværk — der er så godt som ukendt for et dansk publikum.”

Articles in English:

The Other Adam Smith. By Derek Wall (Marx & Philosophy Review of Books, 23 July 2015). Review of Mike Hill and Warren Montag’s book (Stanford University Press, 2015, 397 p.). “Mike Hill and Warren Montag argue, convincingly to my mind, that Adam Smith was a major thinker across a vast range of fields.” See also Mike Hill and Warren Montag: Debating The Other Adam Smith: A response to Christian Thorne’s review (Historical Materialism, 31 May 2919). 

Devotees of a dead Scotsman (Weekly Worker, Issue 1059, 21 May 2015). ” Was Adam Smith the champion of ‘free market and classical liberal views’? Chis Gray thinks not.”

How the right got Adam Smith wrong on the eve of environmental (and hence economic) catastrophe. By Spencer J. Pack (Logos: A Journal of Modern Society and Culture, Vol.12, No.1, Winter 2013). “It is quite clear that Adam Smith was no libertarian. The right wing narrow interpretations of Smith do not do him justice.”

Adam Smith’s profoundest reader. By Spencer A Leonard (Weekly Worker, Issue 895, December 22, 2011). “The neglect of what is novel in Smith goes hand in hand with the neglect of Marx’s immanent relation to liberalism and to bourgeois revolution itself.”

Adam Smith is closer to Karl Marx than those showering praise on Smith today. By Éric Toussaint (CADTM, 12 June 2009). “In the following citations, we discover that what Adam Smith wrote in the 1770s is not so distant from what Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels would write 70 years later in the famous Communist Manifesto.”

Northern star. By Chris Harman (Socialist Review, No.194, February 1996). Review of Ian Simpson Ross, The Life of Adam Smith (Oxford University Press, 1995). “This book is a useful, but pedestrian, account of his life.”

Education is ignorance. By Noam Chomsky (Chomsky Info). Excerpted from Class Warfare (Common Courage Press, 1996) + Video: Noam Chomsky on Adam Smith & invisible hand (YouTube.com, 4:31 min.). “He’s pre-capitalist, a figure of the Enlightenment. What we would call capitalism he despised.”
