2. The Wealth of Nations � Adam Smith
3. ON THE ORIGIN OF SPECIES � Charles Darwin

Enlightenment philosophers applied the concept of Nature and Natural Law to every physical and social field of the day.

Newton's conception of the universe based upon natural and rationally understandable laws became one of the seeds for Enlightenment ideology.

Adam Smith applied Natural conceptions of psychology and self-interest to economic systems. Charles Darwin applied human evolution conceptions into biology. John Locke applied concepts of Natural Law to political systems advocating intrinsic rights. Thomas Malthus applied the Natural Law to population research of economics.

The invisible hand of the market in economics is to describe the self-regulating behavior of the marketplace. In The Wealth of Nations, Smith speaks of An Invisible Hand as the follows:
�He generally, indeed, neither intends to promote the public interest, nor knows how much he is promoting it. By preferring the support of domestic to that of foreign industry, he intends only his own security; and by directing that industry in such a manner as its produce may be of the greatest value, he intends only his own gain, and he is in this, as in many other cases, led by an invisible hand to promote an end which was no part of his intention.�

After more than two centuries, the works by Isaac Newton, Adam Smith, and Charles Darwin still stands as the best statement and defense of the fundamental principles of capitalism. The book is already read more than two hundred years and it will still be read for another century due to its truths.
This book is for the readers who need to learn and study the world from the perspectives of natural law and economic law.
