James R. Otteson, The Journal of Scottish Philosophy 'Leonidas Montes surveys an array of central issues in Smith's thought, with extremely close attention to how those issues might be illuminated by the context of Smith's work... Montes is an extremely careful scholar, and his understanding of Smith is rich and deep.' - Samuel Fleischacker, Journal of the History of Economic Thought 'new and insightful interpretations on a wide range of issues related to Smith..This is a truly impressive work by a young and gifted scholar. Experts on Adam Smith will find new perspectives in each chapter. The scholarship is meticulous and masterful' - Jeffrey T. Young, St. Lawrence University in History of Political Economy 'Monte's book covers a broad multidisciplinary canvas and its main lines of argument are stimulating, ambitious and wide-ranging.
