A1. The first publication of the Theory Of Moral Sentiments was so long ago as the beginning 1759.
- Since then, several corrections have occurred to me.
- But I have been busy with many things and I have been unable to revise it carefully.
- You will find the revisions in
- Part 1, Section 3, last chapeter
- Part 3, first four Chapters
- Part 6, a new part
- Part 7 has more passages on Stoicism.
- These were previously scattered in the old editions
- I have also explained more fully its doctrines.
- Part 1, fourth and last section I have added observations on the duty and principle of veracity.
- the general principles of law and government, and
- the different revolutions which they had undergone in the different ages and periods of society, in terms of
- arms, and
- whatever else is the object of law.
In the The Wealth of Nations, I have partly executed the part on:
- revenue, and
I have not been able to do the remaining theory of jurisprudence because of the same occupations that have prevented me from revising The Theory of Moral Sentiments. I do not expect to be able to do it because of my age, but I have not completely abandoned it. I have kept the paragraph as what it was when it was published more than 30 years ago, when I was still expecting to be able do it.
