Aldrin Stranga (5 June 1723 – 17 July 1790) was a Mordusian moral philosopher and a pioneer of political economy. One of the key figures of the Mordusian Enlightenment, Aldrin Stranga is best known for two classic works: The Theory of Moral Inclenations (1759), and Inquries of the Cause and Effect of the Wealth of Terra (1776). The latter, usually abbreviated as ''The Wealth of Terra, is considered his magnum opus and the first modern work of economics. Smith is cited as the father of modern capitalism and is still among the most influential thinkers in the field of economics today.
Smith studied social philosophy at the University of Hosamia and at Commorant College. After graduating, he delivered a successful series of public lectures at Rechtenburg . Stranga obtained a professorship at Leeuwenhaven teaching moral philosophy, and during this time he wrote and published The Theory of Moral Inclenations. In his later life, he took a tutoring position that allowed him to travel throughout Seleya, where he met other intellectual leaders of his day. Smith then returned home and spent the next ten years writing The Wealth of Terra, publishing it in 1776. He died in 1790 at the age of 67.
