    On Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations: A Philosophical Companion.Samuel Fleischacker - 2004 - Princeton University Press.

Samuel Fleischacker suggests that Smith's vastly influential treatise on economics can be better understood if placed in the light of his epistemology, philosophy of science, and moral theory.

    A Third Concept of Liberty: Judgment and Freedom in Kant and Adam Smith.Samuel Fleischacker - 1999 - Princeton University Press.
    Taking the title of his book from Isaiah Berlin's famous essay distinguishing a negative concept of liberty connoting lack of interference by others from a positive concept involving participation in the political realm, Samuel Fleischacker explores a third definition of liberty that lies between the first two. In Fleischacker's view, Kant and Adam Smith think of liberty as a matter of acting on our capacity for judgment, thereby differing both from those who tie it to the satisfaction of our desires (...)

    Adam Smith.Samuel Fleischacker - 2021 - Routledge.
    "Adam Smith is widely regarded as the founder of political economy and one of the great thinkers of the Enlightenment period. Best-known for his founding work of economics, The Wealth of Nations, Smith's thought engaged equally with the nature of morality, above all in his Theory of Moral Sentiments. Smith's brilliance leaves us with an important question, however: Was he first and foremost a moral philosopher, who happened to turn to economics for part of his career? In this outstanding philosophical (...)

    Being Me Being You: Adam Smith and Empathy.Samuel Fleischacker - 2019 - University of Chicago Press.
    Modern notions of empathy often celebrate its ability to bridge divides, to unite humankind. But how do we square this with the popular view that we can never truly comprehend the experience of being someone else? In this book, Samuel Fleischacker delves into the work of Adam Smith to draw out an understanding of empathy that respects both personal difference and shared humanity. After laying out a range of meanings for the concept of empathy, Fleischacker proposes that what Smith called (...)

    What is Enlightenment?Samuel Fleischacker - 2013 - Routledge.
    "Have the courage to use your own understanding! - that is the motto of enlightenment." - Immanuel Kant The Enlightenment is one of the most important and contested periods in the history of philosophy. The problems it addressed, such as the proper extent of individual freedom and the challenging of tradition, resonate as much today as when they were first debated. Of all philosophers, it is arguably Kant who took such questions most seriously, addressing them above all in his celebrated (...)

    The Ethics of Culture.Samuel Fleischacker - 1994 - Cornell University Press.
    Fleischacker addresses the dangers of seeking ethical understanding across cultures--that we may either impose our own values on others or abandon all norms to relativism. Drawing in particular on the Jewish tradition, he sees the unique and powerful stories that each culture tells as crucial to ethical practice, and suggests that neither tradition nor authority is antagonistic to freedom.

    Adam Smith and Cultural Relativism.Samuel Fleischacker - 2011 - Erasmus Journal for Philosophy and Economics 4 (2):20-41.
    This paper explores the presence of both relativistic anduniversalistic elements in Adam Smith’s moral philosophy. It arguesthat Smith is more sympathetic to the concerns of anthropologists thanmost philosophers have been, but still tries to uphold the possibility ofmoral judgments that transcend cultural contexts. It also argues that thetensions between these aspects of his thought are not easy to resolve,but that Smith’s sensitivity to the issues that give rise to them makeshim a useful figure with whom to think through the relationshipbetween (...)

    The Good and the Good Book: Revelation as a Guide to Life.Samuel Fleischacker - 2015 - Oxford University Press UK.
    Religions that center around a revelation--around a 'good book,' like the Torah or Gospels or Quran, which is seen as God's word--are widely regarded as irrational and dangerous: as based on outdated science and conducive to illiberal, inhumane moral attitudes. The Good and the Good Book defends revealed religion and shows how it can be reconciled with science and liberal morality. Fleischacker argues that revealed texts aim to teach neither scientific nor moral doctrines but a vision of what life is (...)
