Science in History, Volume 4: The Social Sciences, Conclusion.
Bernal, J. D.
This volume, the last of four, includes parts seven and eight of the eight parts in the series. Part Seven deals with the sciences of society which are described as the latest and most imperfect of the sciences. It is doubtful if, in their present form, they can be called sciences at all. The historical development of the social sciences is traced up until 1848. From this point on, two divergent systems, capitalism and socialism, are traced. Part Eight attempts to summarize the development of science and technique throughout human history and to assess the meaning of this development in the present and the future. (Author/TS)
