Adam Smith (1723–1790) was a Scottish philosopher who, with his good friend David Hume, can be ranked as the most famous of the 18th century “Scottish Enlightenment” philosophers. He is most well-known for his 1776 book An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations, perhaps the first modern work of economics; it was an instant success.
