    Adam Smith and the Circles of Sympathy: Cosmopolitanism and Moral Theory.Fonna Forman-Barzilai - 2010 - Cambridge University Press.
    This 2010 text pursues Adam Smith's views on moral judgement, humanitarian care, commerce, justice and international law both in historical context and through a twenty-first-century cosmopolitan lens, making this a major contribution not only to Smith studies but also to the history of cosmopolitan thought and to contemporary cosmopolitan discourse itself. Forman-Barzilai breaks ground, demonstrating the spatial texture of Smith's moral psychology and the ways he believed that physical, affective and cultural distance constrain the identities, connections and ethical obligations of (...)

    Sympathy in Space(S): Adam Smith on Proximity.Fonna Forman-Barzilai - 2005 - Political Theory 33 (2):189 - 217.
    In this essay the author explores the relation between sympathy and proximity in Adam Smith's Theory of Moral Sentiments. The essay proceeds in two parts.

    Adam Smith as Globalization Theorist.Fonna Forman-Barzilai - 2000 - Critical Review: A Journal of Politics and Society 14 (4):391-419.
    In the Theory of Moral Sentiments, Adam Smith observed that we live in a fundamentally conflictual world. Although he held that we are creatures who sympathize, he also observed that our sympathy seems to be constrained by geographical limits. Accordingly, traditional theories of cosmopolitanism were implausible; yet, as a moral philosopher, Smith attempted to reconcile his bleak description of the world with his eagerness for international peace. Smith believed that commercial intercourse among self?interested nations would emulate sympathy on a global (...)
