Abstract: The paper is a book review of Sergio Cremaschi's David Ricardo. An Intellectual Biography, published in 2022. It argues that Cremaschi's book testifies to the difficulty of applying intellectual history to the biographical genre, which is concerned with the portrait of an individual rather than the picture of a milieu. The paper nevertheless concludes that the book will be read with pleasure by all those who admire in Ricardo the fascinating economist that was also a gracious person.
