I am reading "The Theory of Moral Sentiments" by Adam Smith. There's a lot of technical, and/or dated language. Is there a good companion to read this with?

  • $\begingroup$ Vernon Smith recently released something (or will soon) with Bart Wilson dealing with that text. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @123: I think you may be referring to Humanomics (2019) by Vernon Smith and Bart Wilson. (I'm not sure though that it's the sort of book that Jay is looking for.) $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Maybe not. However, it does include the phrase "moral sentiments [...] for the twenty-first century..." in its description :) so maybe so? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Ah, Vern and I go way back. I'll just ask him for a copy when we golf next week. $\endgroup$
