WE may judge of the propriety or impropriety of the sentiments of another person by their correspondence or disagreement with our own, upon two different occasions; either, first, when the objects which excite them are considered without any peculiar relation, either to ourselves or to the person whose sentiments we judge of; or, secondly, when they are considered as peculiarly affecting one or other of us.

The Essays of Adam Smith: Part I, SEC. I, Chapter II - Of the Pleasure of mutual Sympathy

BUT whatever may be the cause of sympathy, or however it may be excited, nothing pleases us more than to observe in other men a fellow-feeling with all the emotions of our own breast; nor are we ever so much shocked as by the appearance of the contrary. Those who are fond of deducing all our sentiments from certain refinements of self-love, think themselves at no loss to account, according to their own principles, both for this pleasure and this pain. Man, say they, conscious of his own weakness, and of the need which he has for the assistance of others, rejoices whenever he observes that they adopt his own passions, because he is then assured of that assistance; and 14 grieves whenever he observes the contrary, because he is then assured of their opposition. But both the pleasure and the pain are always felt so instantaneously, and often upon such frivolous occasions, that it seems evident that neither of them can be derived from any such self-interested consideration. A man is mortified when, after having endeavoured to divert the company, he looks round and sees that nobody laughs at his jests but himself. On the contrary, the mirth of the company is highly agreeable to him, and he regards this correspondence of their sentiments with his own as the greatest applause.

ArtSci Roundup: School of Art + Art History + Design Graduation Exhibitions, A Conversation with Rep. Adam Smith on US National Security Challenges, and More

Professor Emeritus Richard Salomon (Department of Asian Languages and Literature, UW) will share some of the insights and inspirations he has gained from studying Sanskrit and classical Indian literature and culture for over fifty years. He will also outline the long-standing tradition of Sanskrit instruction at the University of Washington that goes back well over 100 years. Professor Salomon will present readings of classic verses and lines from well-known Sanskrit authors to show how their complexity, subtlety, and imaginativeness set flowing the rasa, the “nectar” that is the aesthetic essence of Sanskrit literature. He will focus in particular on the works of Kālidāsa, widely acclaimed as the greatest of Sanskrit poets, and his unique and remarkable retelling of the history of King Rāma and the story of the Rāmāyaṇa in his epic poem, “The Dynasty of Raghu.”

Adam Smith and Radical Decency

O’Rourke, a senior at Emory University studying economics and philosophy, is an intern at the Bridge Alliance. In the middle of the Scottish enlightenment in 1776, the premodern social scientist and moral philosopher Adam Smith published what later became the magnum opus of free-market capitalism. “The Wealth of Nations” became the starting point from which the academic field of economics emerged and societies organized their economies.
