How Adam Smith can Change Your Life. 身為人

A short but surprisingly good book

“The first principle is that you must not fool yourself– and you are the easiest person to fool” — Richard Feynman

“Humility is an acquired taste. Once you come to like it, it’s a dish best served hot. It’s amazing how liberating it can be to say – I don’t know–“ Russ Roberts

過去認識亞當史密思都是他的經濟學經典”國富論”,但沒聽過他另一本哲學/心理著作” The theory of mortal sentiment” (中文 “道德情操論”),見識到他很不同的一面。身為經濟學大師,他很清金錢與權力之於個人幸福的有限,也很有條理的分析人和社群複雜的心理和行為。跨領域思維(multidisciplinary) 真的跟單一領域深入探討很不一樣。


中文版 “身為人:從自利出發,亞當.斯密給我們的十堂思辨課”
