Lucid & informative post. One thought: You might perhaps find it pertinent to your discussion to consider D'Alembert's distinction between the old 'esprit de système' and the Enlightenment 'esprit systematique' (in his Discours préliminaire to the Encyclopédie).

Yes, Roy (if I may?), thank you; that's a very important reference for Smith. I explore some of the connections between D'Alembert's Discourse and Smith's philosophy of science in some articles I published a decade ago.)
