Since my rediscovery of Adam Smith’s Theory of Moral Sentiments in August of 2020 (shout out to Sarah Skwire for inviting me to join her virtual Smith reading group back then!), I have devoted a number of in-depth blog posts to a pair of new books on the ideas of Smith, one by Ryan Patrick Hanley (Our Great Purpose: Adam Smith on Living a Better Life); the other by Robin Paul Malloy (Law and the Invisible Hand: A Theory of Adam Smith’s Jurisprudence). I have since combined these posts into a single, short review of both Hanley and Malloy’s works and uploaded it to SSRN (see here). My double review is titled “Do Grasshoppers Dream of Impartial Spectators?” Enjoy!
