Smith obtained a professorship at Glasgow teaching moral philosophy, and during this time he wrote and published The Theory of Moral Sentiments.
The opening lap saw Silverman displaying more valour than discretion in his mildly-hotted-up Renault 750 saloon, which slid sideways out of the chicane and almost overturned; thereafter it went less quickly and boiled. 10-Lap scratch race This was easily the most stirring race of the afternoon.

The minor planet 12838 Adamsmith was named in his memory. Smith entered the University of Glasgow when he was fourteen and studied moral philosophy under Francis Hutcheson. Here, Smith developed his passion for liberty, reason, and free speech.In 1740 Smith was the graduate scholar presented to undertake postgraduate studies at Balliol College, Oxford, under the Snell Exhibition. Adam Smith considered the teaching at Glasgow to be far superior to that at Oxford, which he found intellectually stifling. In Book V, Chapter II of The Wealth of Nations, Smith wrote: "In the University of Oxford, the greater part of the public professors have, for these many years, given up altogether even the pretence of teaching." Smith is also reported to have complained to friends that Oxford officials once discovered him reading a copy of David Hume's Treatise on Human Nature, and they subsequently confiscated his book and punished him severely for reading it. According to William Robert Scott, "The Oxford of [Smith's] time gave little if any help towards what was to be his lifework." Nevertheless, Smith took the opportunity while at Oxford to teach himself several subjects by reading many books from the shelves of the large Bodleian Library. When Smith was not studying on his own, his time at Oxford was not a happy one, according to his letters. Near the end of his time there, Smith began suffering from shaking fits, probably the symptoms of a nervous breakdown. He left Oxford University in 1746, before his scholarship ended. Following the publication of The Theory of Moral Sentiments, Smith became so popular that many wealthy students left their schools in other countries to enroll at Glasgow to learn under Smith. After the publication of The Theory of Moral Sentiments, Smith began to give more attention to jurisprudence and economics in his lectures and less to his theories of morals. For example, Smith lectured that the cause of increase in national wealth is labour, rather than the nation's quantity of gold or silver, which is the basis for mercantilism, the economic theory that dominated Western European economic policies at the time. In 1766, Henry Scott's younger brother died in Paris, and Smith's tour as a tutor ended shortly thereafter. Smith returned home that year to Kirkcaldy, and he devoted much of the next ten years to his magnum opus. There he befriended Henry Moyes, a young blind man who showed precocious aptitude.Adam Smith FRSA (16 June 1723 NS (5 June 1723 OS) – 17 July 1790) was a Scottish economist, philosopher, and author.
He was a moral philosopher, a pioneer of political economy, and was a key figure during the Scottish Enlightenment era. He is best known for two classic works: The Theory of Moral Sentiments (1759), and An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations (1776).
Members' Meeting at Goodwood on March 26th, but, in spite of 56 drivers new to motor-racing taking to the circuit, only three accidents occurred, and these to old hands, who escaped serious injury.
First novices' handicap (5 Laps) Eight Triumph TR2s led away together and Froggatt kept his wire-wheeled version ahead of Hughes' radio-equipped model for three laps, then Hughes disappeared and Barthel's old-type Aston Martin, wipers going, came up into second place, followed by Reynolds' TR2. Ladies' handicap (5 Laps) This, an innovation, gave Pat Moss victory in her first race, a not too difficult feat from a handicap start of 1 min. She took the lead on lap three, driving with extreme confidence and neatness. She held vicious tail slides with skill, leaving the chicane, and on her last lap spun off at Woodcote, only to recover calmly, take the chicane just as fast, and retain her third place. Mary's—we gather this is not the first time she has accomplished this manoeuvre.
Smith laid the foundations of classical free market economic theory.
The Wealth of Nations was a precursor to the modern academic discipline of economics.
