Is there a “people are stupid” school in social psychology?

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 27 (3):348-348 (2004)
This commentary notes the emergence of a “People are Stupid” school of thought that describes social behavior as mindless, automatic, and unconscious. I trace the roots of this “school,” particularly in the link between situationism in social psychology and behaviorism in psychology at large, and suggest that social psychology should focus on the role of the mind in social interaction.
