I wanted to learn how scientific method might solve social problems, since it had been so successful in understanding the natural world. I was no revolutionary but I was most definitely among the social reformers.
A first jolt, I received to this personal project, came over the radio, in new lodgings, when a member of the Royal Society said, for the record, that he believed sociology was not a science.
I was to find that this divide between so-called pure science and applied science also could not be crossed on my sociology course. Tho, its young lecturers did give me a good education in scientific method.
David Hume asserted an unbridgable divide between science and ethics. My tutor who was a splendid teacher, in his way urged, upon me, the logical impossibility of a moral science.
The Kantian name for the social sciences, as the moral sciences, suggested otherwise. Decades later, I met an Impossibility theorem purporting to prove that there is no fair electoral system. This was another not so impossible impossibility. An academic school does not understand that a paradox, of majority rule, is just that, and not a paradox of democracy.
The idol, of the sociology lecturers, was the scholar Max Weber. His method followed Humean dualism, that amounted to a deal with the German state: As a student, I was unable to assimilate the dry-as-dust Weber scholarship and the academic style in general.
It would be tempting to blame my academic student years for a barbaric style, that my literary friend Dorothy Cowlin took to task. Echoes Of A Friend: Letters from Dorothy Cowlin. Comment by Richard Lung. Truth likes to speak plainly enough to be understood.
So, two chapters mainly describe the academic atmosphere when I was a student: To top HG Wells said values are facts. Wells, as a sociologist, was to be my personal contribution to the student protest years.
Even so, it took me into old age to learn how much more he was of a sociologist and a social reformer, than I had guessed, or is generally known. The modern history of science is its evolution from philosophy into successive specialisms. Physics was called natural philosophy. Biology broke loose from theology and is still religiously disputed, but its technical achievements make it indisputably another scientific success story.
A measure of evolution… In the nineteenth century, psychology was still the work of philosophers, like the utilitarians or a pragmatist like William James, or later introspective geniuses like Sigmund Freud and Carl Gustav Jung.
A subsequent chapter, Sigmund Freud and CG Jung, discusses their work, especially with a view to mental health thru a representative democracy of the many aspects of human personality.

Psychology is now set for revolutionary advances, tho it may be called neural science or some such thing.The Tomatometer rating – based on the published opinions of hundreds of film and television critics – is a trusted measurement of movie and TV programming quality for millions of moviegoers.
