Adam Smith's Pluralism

Jack Russell Weinstein

Yale University Press

This chapter, and the ones that follow, argues that sympathy is a rational process, cultivated by education. The aim is to investigate the nature of social unity in Smith's work to see how Smith balances individual and social needs. The chapter looks at the sympathetic process in and of itself. It examines Smith's claim that increased cultural and physical proximity is a bulwark against natural sympathizing.

Keywords:   sympathy, rational process, education, individual needs, social needs, natural sympathizing
