A community of sentimental, wealthy, agnostic Adam Smithians?

David Wootton has a pretty great piece about Deirdre McCloskey's new book The Bourgeois Virtues at the TLS (no subscription required). It's a wonderfully well-handled mix of the scathing and the sympathetic; definitely one for the model-book-review files (model as in technically rather than morally exemplary, though actually this seems to me a very responsible and charming way of handling what sounds like a maddening though also very interesting book).
