Pride and Profit explores the ways that Austen’s novels mirror Smith’s rules. greater than this, they supply colourful illustrations of Smith’s rules on self-command, prudence, benevolence, justice, and impartiality in addition to self-importance, delight, and greed. Jane Austen channels Adam Smith in her tales and characters, and extra importantly, adorns, refines, and explains Smith. Our figuring out of Smith is stronger and improved by way of analyzing Jane Austen simply because she convey his insights to lifestyles and provides insights of her personal. Bohanon and Vachris express how Smithian views on advantage are depicted in Austen’s novels and the way Smith’s and Austen’s views mirror and outline the bourgeoisie tradition of the Enlightenment and commercial revolution.
