Deep thought

“The relational ties that hold human lives together, the conversations that occupy people’s mental lives, the routines and intentions that shape their actions, the institutions within which they live and work, the emotions they feel every day – I have suggested that all of these and more are drenched in, patterned by, glued together with moral premises, convictions, and obligations.  There is thus nowhere a human can go to escape moral order, no way to be human except through moral order.”

Christian Smith, Moral, Believing Animals
