Smith as educator
How does Smith educate people to live virtuous lives in a modern commercial society?
Adam Smith knew that we must integrate thinking around morality and markets to reconcile virtue and commerce. His account of how our moral beliefs develop and change over time is one of the earliest and most sophisticated versions of cultural evolution.
Smith's moral philosophy and his teaching at Glasgow were directed at shaping the character of his students and readers to possess the virtues needed to live successful and happy lives in a commercial society.
