Society has always existed, but social science is remarkably new. How and why did the social sciences originate? How are they related to older philosophical, theological, and moral questions? What is the unique perspective or "way of knowing" of each social science? And what are the challenges to--and alternatives to--the social sciences as we know them today? Take a journey through the history, theories, and schools of economics, political science, psychology, sociology, anthropology, geography, and history and learn how non-Western, feminist, and indigenous ways of knowing are compelling us to rethink and unthink the conventional social sciences.
