The Theory of Moral Sentiments
Cosimo, Inc., 2007 - 368 sivua
In The Theory of Moral Sentiments, renowned social thinker Adam Smith presents an intellectual treatise on the phenomenon-and meaning-of morality. Not just an explication of the external actions and internal conscience that influence our every decision, this is also a study of how ideas such as reward and punishment, luck, and sympathy influence an individual's self-image, behavior, and relationships. At once critical, practical, and sympathetic, this is not only a work for philosophers, but for anyone who has ever wondered what it means to be good. Scottish economist and philosopher ADAM SMITH (1723-1790) helped set standards in the fields of political economics and moral philosophy, playing a key role in the early development of the scholarship of economics. His other writings include Essays on Philosophical Subjects and the influential An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations.

Sivu 2 - When we see a stroke aimed and just ready to fall upon the leg or arm of another person, we naturally shrink and draw back our own leg or our own arm...
Sivu 9 - When the original passions of the person principally concerned are in perfect concord with the sympathetic emotions of the spectator, they necessarily appear to this last just and proper, and suitable to their objects; and, on the contrary, when, upon bringing the case home to himself, he finds that they do not coincide with what he feels, they necessarily appear to him unjust and improper, and unsuitable to the causes which excite them.
