Expansion and Increasing Diversification of the Universe of Social Science.
Gareau, Frederick H.
International Social Science Journal, v39 n4 p595-606 Nov 1987
Refutes the very concept of a social science. Observes that the disciplines which study man and society are too heavily characterized by diversity, lack of consensus, and dissonance to be considered sciences. Classifies social science as a "non-science" and considers the term "social studies" to be a more honest and descriptive name to attach to the disciplines. (GEA)
