Adam Smith was one of the three founders of modern economics, along with Malthus and Ricardo. Yet he was more than that - a true polymath with a vast width of knowledge and a close friend of the philosopher David Hume. To understand him we have to look not just at his famous 'Wealth of Nations' but also his 'Theory of Moral Sentiments', 'Lectures on Jurisprudence' and his Essays. Bringing his life and his work together, we see a man who shaped our modern world.
