The Theory of Moral Sentiments
by Adam Smith

One of the great book on moral philosophy. He clears up many issues, offers insights into ancient, medieval, and modern philosophy, and sets forth a superior theory of his own. The most significant part foe me was his clarification of the role of reason in morality. The only thing wrong with the book is its teleology.

Year Read: 1978
