Resumo

Qual a razão das recentes discussões sobre o “Adam Smith Problem” na literatura? Embora a maioria dos historiadores do pensamento econômico considere o problema resolvido, estas discussões põem em dúvida esta suposta resolução. Este artigo sugere que o “Adam Smith Problem” pode ter como origem o conceito de ser humano desenvolvido por Smith na “Teoria dos Sentimentos Morais”: neste livro, os seres humanos podem ser compreendidos como compostos de uma parte empírica e outra (quase) transcendental, na figura do espectador imparcial. Argumenta-se no artigo que é a tensão entre estas duas partes do ser humano que gera supostas inconsistências entre determinados aspectos da “Teoria dos Sentimentos Morais” e da “Riqueza das Nações”, como, por exemplo, o papel da simpatia e do auto-interesse em cada um destes livros.
