  8. 8. Some Views about Social Sciences.. Social sciences are among the most interesting subjects to study. Human behaviour is fascinating. For anyone involved in a life or profession that deals with human behaviour (which is arguably everyone), knowledge and understanding of communication, conflict-resolution, motivation, etc. is immensely helpful. Additionally, we can look at the successes and failures of situations in the past to gain an understanding of how to better the future. Though this taps more into Social Studies, the principles are the same. Social Sciences: Importance and Scope by : 10/21/2012 8 Dr. MKM Zafar
  9. 9. Some Views about Social Sciences..One of the best reasons is just because it isfascinating to try and figure out why humansdo what they do.

  13. 13. Some Views about Social Sciences.. The term social science is a catch all for so many subjects it is sort of like asking "why should we study life"?

Psychology, Sociology, Anthropology, all of these are essentially the study of what it means to be human. Social Sciences: Importance and Scope by : 10/21/2012 13 Dr. MKM Zafar
