Adam Smith's profile Adam Smith (1723-1790) was the great Scottish philosopher and economist who is best known for his book The Wealth of Nations.

Raised by his widowed mother in Kirkcaldy, Smith won scholarships to Glasgow University and then Balliol College, Oxford. Returning to Glasgow, he was appointed Professor of Logic (1751), then Professor of Moral Philosophy (1752) and lectured on natural theology, ethics, jurisprudence and economics.

At the age of 36 he published The Theory of Moral Sentiments, a groundbreaking work on moral philosophy. His abilities caught the eye of the Duke of Buccleuch, who engaged him as Tutor to his son on the Grand Tour of Europe, where Smith met other eminent thinkers such as Voltaire, Rousseau, and Franklin.

Smith retired back to Kirkcaldy to write An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations, published in 1776.
