Adam Smith @ 300

In recent decades, a new generation of scholars from various disciplines has found fresh,  angles from which to interpret and work with the thought of the Scottish Enlightenment philosopher Adam Smith. With its scope and systematicity, with its depth and density, Smith’s work presents us with a wealth of notions and theories to think about, be it from the perspective of philosophy, political science, economics, sociology or law etc. In view of the tricentennial of Smith’s birth in 2023, the NOUS network launched a project aiming to give this new generation of research an additional impulse. A selected group of scholars has been invited to present and discuss not yet published work at a conference in Edinburgh in June 2023. The papers will be published in a peer-reviewed yearbook under the umbrella of the “Journal of Contextual Economics – Schmollers Jahrbuch”.
