The phrase was previously applied to sociology, the first “science of society,” which was founded in the nineteenth century.

Social science may help us understand how our own society works, from the causes of unemployment to what promotes economic progress, as well as how and why people vote and what makes people happy.

Social scientists look at every facet of society, from historical events and achievements to human behaviour and group connections. Their findings shed light on the various ways in which individuals, organisations, and institutions make decisions, exert power, and adapt to change.
