Answering the question of Smith’s stance on the poor, for example, is one that has recently been explored. Rothschild touches upon the issue in her analysis of Reading the Wealth of Nations 15 the changing contexts of reading Smith before, during and after the French Revolution and points to Dugald Stewart’s desire to preserve the scientific aspects of Smith from potentially contentious elements in his social thinking (Rothschild, 2001). Stressing the scientific nature of Smith’s arguments meant that other aspects were suppressed.

A methodological approach to ‘literary economics’ or to its American version, ‘the new economic criticism’, capable of tracing the development and making an analysis of economic ideas in literary contexts, is still developing. A general cultural significance, though interesting, is inadequate to explain the continued interest in Smith as an economist. There is also a history of ‘economic’ interpretation going back to the writings of Karl Marx, John Stuart Mill, David Ricardo, Jean-Baptise Say, Dugald Stewart (whose account of Smith’s economic significance was written in 1799) and of many other authors both major and minor.

This is an historical method to which textual analysis can also be applied. But the shift in perspective away from Smith’s Wealth of Nations as a foundation text in economics and towards Smith as a generator of an Enlightenment text reveals new areas in which it is necessary to consider as contributing to the synthesis. Force has raised this, if only by implication, as an issue when he reads both the Moral Sentiments and the Wealth of Nations through Mandeville and Rousseau and, indeed, by reading each off against the other two.
