Mindsets in the Moral Order

All spontaneous orders have rules. Those rules can make them a good or a perverse order. And, as it turns out, this is true too of the moral order. The researchers discussed discuss different "mindsets," but where do those mindsets come from? Social expectations are going to affect what of these mindsets are more common. I would expect to see different patterns of these in different societies. This would in turn be affected by the institutions in place. There is an exciting research opportunity here.
