Nicholas Christakis' Biological Sociology of the Good Society

My review of Nicholas Christakis' book Blueprint: The Evolutionary Origins of a Good Society has just been published by Law & Liberty.  

Although Christakis does not say so himself, I draw a Hayekian conclusion from his book--that we can judge the free society to be the best society, because it most fully satisfies the social suite of our evolved human nature, and because individual freedom is required for having and recognizing the individual identity that is foundational for the social suite.
