    Excerpt from Revised Report of the Proceedings at the Dinner of 31st May, 1876, Held in Celebration of the Hundredth Year of the Publication of the Wealth of Nations

    I do not pretend to account for the fact how it should be that Political Economy may boast of this prevision or pre diction, which has been denied to the cognate arts or sciences whether it be that the exceptions from the rule, that men act according to their own interest as they under stand it, are so slight, as mathematicians say, that they may be altogether neglected, or whether it be that in some degree men err in different directions so as to cancel each other but I apprehend nothing is more certain than that the main truths of Political Economy do not rest upon d posteriori arguments, but that they rest upon assumptions with regard to what mankind will do in particular circum stances, which assumptions experience has verified and shown to be true. And without reference to anything that Adam Smith may have accomplished for the benefit of the human race otherwise, I call your attention to this as a most remarkable achievement, one perfectly unique in the history of mental science, and which alone ought, in my opinion, to raise him to the very highest rank among those who have cultivated the more abstruse parts of knowledge.
