@Hope: Society develops by the progression of technology. Technology progresses because of advances in science - physical sciences, that is (most often, chemistry and physics). Social science tracks
progression, and understands it, but it rarely actually shapes
If Social Science shaped progression, we'd have gotten rid of war centuries ago. Instead, we've gotten better at it. Never mind the complete lack of social scientists predicting the rise of the internet and "plugged-in" culture. Very few of them are even researching it
properly, that I've seen.
@Joey: I'm a Physics major who wants to go into Materials Engineering with some interests in International Development. It's not so much that I'm dismissive as just that I am well aware where my strong points lie.
