  • All right. If we're all settled? Yes? Good.

  • Welcome.

  • We are the Social Science department.

  • Now, I'll get right to it.

  • The question on every one's mind:

  • "Just what the heck is social science?"

  • Well, let me try to explain.

  • Social, as in society, as in human beings.

  • Science, as in the facts, the systematic study of a thing,

  • the pursuit of its true nature.

  • We seek to understand the nature of people and society.

  • What does it mean to be human?

  • What defines a person?

  • Is it history? Is it ancestry? How has he worked, struggled, thrived?

  • - In his environment. - Sorry?

  • In his environment.

  • Did he live on a mountain?

  • Or in the desert? Near the sea? In the arctic?

  • Ancestry is important, but location is paramount.

  • That's all very fascinating, but I have a question.

  • What is this person like?

  • Is it a man or a woman? What's her race? What does he or she do?

  • Well, profession relies greatly on geography.

  • The natural resources that exist here.

  • Proximity to natural resources is fine,

  • but what about proximity to other people?

  • The sociological element is undeniable.

  • What happens when he feels the influence of other human beings?

  • Then how will he behave?

  • What will be expected of him?

  • Will he fulfill these expectations?

  • Now it's a collection of people.

  • It's a town. Or a city. It's a community.

  • Hmm... community.

  • But who's in charge?

  • [People talking, yelling, commotion]

  • Whoa, whoa, whoa. We need structure. Leaders.

  • Several leaders, if we can. Oh, that's better.

  • See, when we organize, we give our man a voice,

  • an identity within his society.

  • This is where his ancestry and his geography

  • and his social interaction come together: the political realm.

  • Ah, but is the true nature of man witnessed only in his interaction

  • with the world around him?

  • I ask you: where do his actions begin?

  • With a thought. And where do his thoughts originate?

  • The brain, madam, the brain.

  • Guten doctoren, is it only his experience in society that informs him and shapes him?

  • Or, or, is he born this way, every cell and synapse forming just so,

  • making him the man he is?

  • He is interacting, sure, buzzing around, a busy bee in the hive of society, sure, sure.

  • But his inner being!

  • His motivations, his thoughts, his feelings, his hurt, his joy.

  • This will be largely unknown. Unless, mein doktoren, we study his psychology.

  • Well, very intriguing, Dr. Psych!

  • Thank you.

  • So, as you can see, we social scientists cover a wide range of topics.

  • But we all agree on one thing:

  • people, and the societies in which they live, are a fascinating study.

All right. If we're all settled? Yes? Good.
