Why does social science have the label science in it, when it's impossible to prove anything within this field?
In a hard science, there are precise measurements and well-defined laws that can be replicated and demonstrated time and time again in experiments. In a social science, it’s impossible to prove anything. Social sciences can develop theories and models on how something works, but you can’t put it in a test lab to perform experiments on it.
Is social science mislabeled?
