Reading Adam Smith's Texts on Morals and Wealth

Economics and Philosophy 11 (2):344 (1995)
In his Comment, Richard Arlen Kleer accepts much of the argument in my article but insists that I have. Kleer agrees that there is a moral hierarchy in Adam Smith's Theory of Moral Sentiments where benevolence and self-command are ranked higher than justice and prudence, but he is uneasy with the conclusion that economic activity and the pursuit of gain are activities and insists that they do have a significant moral standing. In addition, although Kleer accepts a good deal of the stylistic analysis, again he is uneasy with the results that are derived from it. This reply will take each of these aspects in turn
