Summary/Abstract: The aim of the paper is analyzing Adam Smith’s views on historical process, state, law and morality. Methodologically, these views are of interest from a contemporary point of view since they combine two seemingly incompatible principles, that of rationality and objectivity, on the one hand, and that of immediate experience, sympathy and solidarity, on the other. In this respect, Smith stands closer to our times in comparison to a range of other eminent figures of the Enlightenment.
