I started off my work as a philosopher with my book on human tendencies towards sympathy with my book, The Theory of Moral Sentiments, and then published my most renowned piece, The Wealth of Nations, which encouraged free trade in order to receive and return equal riches between countries.

I am looking for a job that will put me in a position to try to carry out my beliefs on a wide range of people. 



Economic Philosophy

Glasgow University, Scotland

This degree taught me in great detail how to think for myself in economics and how to make my own decisions. It could have been something my father could have taught me himself, if he hadn't died.

Moral and Economic Philosophy

Glasgow University, Scotland  

I enjoy teaching my bright students about morals and what they mean to human nature. I also teach about economics. 


After I had graduated from Glasgow, I traveled around Switzerland and France educating a young Duke. My travels brought me into contact with renowned philosophers such as Voltaire, Rousseau, and Turgot. These experiences helped to become the philosopher I am today. 

Major Works

I have written two bestsellers:

The Theory of Human Sentiment, which outlines why humans regard themselves and others the way that they do. This includes how the conscience should work, and how it holds us in reality. It also talks about how God has set the universe like a clock, and thus we are like a clock in the way that we behave. Because God made us to be divine, all people will reach a divine equilibrium as was originally planned by God. 

My other work was The Wealth of Nations. I start out giving a basic rundown of the economy from the view of human nature. I set up the book to lead into the points that I make against mercantilism. My problem with mercantilism is that it is based on a gold or silver standard, relating the good flowing in to the price of the gold or silver. I believe that the nation's wealth should be solely based on the products and services that flow in and out of the country. This would not only create a more stable economy, but actually broaden the wealth to counties who have the same resources, but they are valued at a lower standard compared to other, more wealthier countries. 


I believe in the rights of the common man. I think that a country can only be happy if the lower class is happy. If that means equality for all, though it is nearly impossible, I think there should be made an effort to achieve it.

One of my greatest quotes is:

 "To feel much for others and little for ourselves; to restrain our selfishness and exercise our benevolent affections, constitute the perfection of human nature."
