This book examines the role of the “impartial spectator” in Adam Smith’s Theory of Moral Sentiments. It explores the importance that Smith gives to being well-informed and attentive in making moral judgments, and suggests that the Smithian ethics aspires to universality despite it being founded on basic feelings such as sympathy and resentment.
