Social Function of Social Science


The Social Function of Social Science by Duncan MacRae Jr. (1976) and Teaching Social Change: A Group Approach by Norman E. Zinberg and Harold N. Boris (1976). For several decades, social scientists have been writing about the benefits of a unified social science, without our ever having achieved one discipline are strongly entrenched both with respect to their own discipline, and toward those in other disciplines. One side emphasizes the word social in the two-word phrase; the other side emphasizes the science. To date, they have not made peace with each other. The author simply proposes that the social sciences have a "higher" goal, or "higher" utility. He proposes that they aim at reasoned understanding and prediction of human behavior, and that the understanding and prediction should be concerned with obtaining the general interest of all the people. In Teaching Social Change, an educational experiment that began as an innovative experience which would have implications for social change was not a success in achieving this end. Some ethical professionals had ethical goals clearly before them. The Zinberg-Boris book should have meaning for a wider audience than the MacRae volume. Particularly for beginners in psychology and psychotherapy, we recommend highly the remarkably clear and succinct description of the various techniques considered available to the researchers for effecting social change.
