I recently read a pretty interesting book review of a book that asserts people make decisions based on their own social morality, not logic, reason or education. But now I can't find said book review or remember where I read it. Help, hivemind!

Could you give any more detail on what you mean by "social morality"?

Maybe William Saletan's review in last Sunday's New York Times Book Review of The Righteous Mind by Jonathan Haidt?

Was it this one?

I just read a review like this in the NY Times a few days ago and it went on my "to read" list. Could this be it? The Righteous Mind?

Never mind, bah! Type too slowly...

Yes! It was the Haidt review! As usual, stunning speed in answering the question. Thanks very much. Adding a bookmark and adding the book to my "to read" shelf in Goodreads.
