I am not a scholar of Smith, but a scholar of vitalism. In seeking to connect the two themes, it turns out that some recent literature dealing partly with Smith makes this connection, unsuccessfully in my view. Vitalism is used carelessly. However, Schliesser’s work is an indication of how certain issues in ‘substance and property’ relations, including of the Newtonian sort, can be expanded in a vitalistic direction.
