Reviews

Philosophers are regaining interest in the writings of Adam Smith and in this timely volume John McHugh has provided the first dedicated critical analysis of the whole of Adam Smith's Theory of Moral Sentiments. It is clear, well-written, and manages to balance philosophical rigour with accessibility. McHugh sympathetically translates Smith's eighteenth century prose into 21st century philosophical idiom in a fashion that is lucid, true to the ideas of the original, and sophisticated in its critical engagement. * Craig Smith, Adam Smith Senior Lecturer in the Scottish Enlightenment, University of Glasgow, UK * McHugh provides us with something we've sorely lacked--a clear, philosophical introduction to Smith's claims and arguments in The Theory of Moral Sentiments. With lucid prose, historical sensitivity, and sharp insight, McHugh guides the reader through the intricacies of Smith's great text. This book ably engages the expert and aids the novice. * Colin Heydt, Professor of Philosophy, University of South Florida, USA * This is a careful and very accessible reading of Adam Smith's Theory of Moral Sentiments. John McHugh presents it as a contribution to both moral sentimentalism and virtue theory: proper sentiments guide virtuous persons' moral judgments and actions. Smith's engagement with and departure from David Hume's moral theory is a relevant topic. The reader gets a clear idea of Smiths account of moral judgments as both explanatory and normative. A highly recommended read for anyone interested in moral sentimentalism and its history. * Christel Fricke, Professor of Philosophy, University of Oslo, Norway *
