Adam Smith Systematic Philosopher and Public Thinker
Adam Smith: Systematic Philosopher and Public Thinker By Eric Schliesser
2017 | 407 Pages | ISBN: 0190690127 | PDF | 5 MB
Eric Schliesser’s Adam Smith is the product of two decades’ reflection by the author on the great Scottish Enlightenment. Unique among treatments of Adam Smith, Schliesser’s book treats him as a systematic philosopher. Smith was a giant of the Scottish Enlightenment with polymath interests; Schliesser thus explores Smith’s economics and ethics in light of his other commitments on the nature of knowledge, the theory of emotions, the theory of mind, his account of language, the nature of causation, and his views on methodology. He places Smith’s ideas in the context of a host of other philosophers, especially Hume, Rousseau, and Newton; and he draws on the reception of Smith’s ideas by Sophie de Grouchy, Mary Wollstonecraft, and other philosophers and economists to sketch the elements of, and the detailed connections within, Smith’s system. Adam Smith traces the outlines of Smith’s intellectual system and situates it in the context of his highly developed views on the norms that govern responsible speech. In particular, the book articulates Smith’s concerns about the impact of his public policy recommendations, especially on the least powerful in society. In so doing, Schliesser offers new interpretations of Smith’s views on the invisible hand, the Wealth of Nations, his treatment of virtue, the nature of freedom, the individual’s relationship to society, his account of the passions, the moral roles of religion, and his treatment of the role of mathematics in economics. While the book does offer a single argument, it is organized in a modular fashion and includes a helpful index; readers with a more focused interest in Smith’s achievements can skip to their section of interest.

Introducing Systematic Simplicity to Manage Decisions
Introducing Systematic Simplicity to Manage Decisions: How a Systematic Simplicity Approach Builds Clarity about Opportunity, Risk and Uncertainty Essential to All Best Practice Decision Making by Chris Chapman
English | July 9, 2021 | ISBN: 1914195450 | 255 pages | EPUB | 1.84 Mb
Chris initially developed the systematic simplicity approach explored in this book working as a consultant with BP International for eight years in the 1970s and 80s on offshore North Sea oil projects. When the BP board approved the first project applying this approach, they mandated its use worldwide for all large or sensitive projects. The BP objectives included achieving ‘risk efficiency’ (a minimum level of risk for any given level of expected reward) in a ‘clarity efficient’ manner (a maximum level of relevant clarity for any given level of effort/cost) plus the delivery of projects on time and within budget. These objectives were realised for the decade this approach was employed, prior to placing more risk with contractors and a portfolio of other interrelated corporate changes. IBM UK used Chris in a central role for a 1990s culture change programme addressing what is now seen as ‘opportunity management’, adapting a version of the BP approach to enable all IBM staff to avoid risk of the wrong kind, but take more risk of the right kind, understanding the difference, and understanding the difference between good luck and good management, bad luck and bad management.
