Abstract

SIMONS, Petrus. Adam Smith's contribution to secularisation. Koers (Online) [online]. 2013, vol.78, n.2, pp.02-03. ISSN 2304-8557.

This article examined several crucial themes in Adam Smith's philosophy with the purpose of highlighting and assessing his contribution to the secularisation of Western society. The article, written from the perspective of reformational philosophy, begins with a brief biography and sketch of Adam Smith's influence on modern society, followed by a summary of Ponti Venter's view on Smith. This sets the scene for a discussion of Adam Smith's project, his method of tackling it, and his views on systems, philosophy of history and the concept of philosophy.
