Subject Social Science
- In your considered albeit initial review of the social sciences’ emergence as important areas of inquiry, do you find them to be valuable to the study of human behavior and organization? If so, how? Do you find value in the purposes of social science research, illuminating human behavioral and organization realities so as to improve humanity’s condition? If so, how; if not, why not?
- Do you believe it is possible to improve humanity’s condition through the better understanding of unfortunate realities and conditions facing humanity? In other words, should social science research identify problems and injustices in the human experience so that society can solve them (i.e., across the many different types of political and economic systems around the world)?
