Philip Pilkington has written a piece about the problem with individualism and myths, a topic I have written on also. While I agree with the bulk of what he has to say, and I offer some of my own comments (these are taken from a paper in review, a copy is available on request) in what follows, I feel he misses the true culprits in criticising Adam Smith.Magic, Maths, and Money — The relationship between science and finance
Individuality and reciprocity

I just happened on Tim Johnson's blog. Very interesting indeed. He has some very thought provoking posts that I'll have to take a look at. He has an impressive breadth and depth of knowledge.
