Professor Smith was, at the time of the publication of this essay in the Ohio State University's law journal , midway through a year span as chairman of the Ohio State physics department. He basically works his way through history to demonstrate the development of the modern experimental method and extrapolates that society would be best served by extending the scientific method to many more aspects of society social and cultural issues, etc. Smith describes how social sciences could benefit from the modern, coordinate-free approach in physics. He also wishes for a tighter coupling in social sciences as we've seen historically with physics theory and engineering practice. Interesting article.

Essential tools for comprehension.

Back Matter Pages About this book Introduction Read this book if you want to know how to give students the intellectual pleasure of understanding physics. Philosophically, finding commonality in systems is powerful and any bias coordinates distorts those commonalities making them harder to perceive.

From the article, I inferred that finding coordinate-free approaches in social sciences could be fruitful. I'm not a mathematician or physicist, but after a bit of googling I do find some material that advances coordinate-free approaches as a kind of ethical discipline. Relations, understood as ordered pairs, for example, don't have a "natural order", we should mentally maintain the symmetry and absence of priority between statements like "the cat sat on the mat" and "the mat was sat on by the cat".

There's always, in discourse, an origin--a speaker. We can't escape that see e. Pretty dangerous territory. The focus is on the subtle impact of using some framework for analysis rather than the gross impact of individual bias obviously that's an issue every scientist should be and probably is aware of.

For example, statistical causal models are widely used in the social sciences. After searching within the field, I looked for a problem associated with explanation ambiguity due to how the models were framed or could be equivalently framed leading to alternate explanations and found this paper: MacCallum, R.

The problem of equivalent models in applications of covariance structure analysis. Psychological Bulletin, 1 , It could then be an example of a coordinate-free approach to data analysis in psychology.

Nope, not that. Whether they are true or false in the absolute sense is not a pertinent question. Their consequences must agree with nature. They are working hypotheses which are to be discarded whenever they cease to be effective or helpful.

Progress means bringing new sets of observations with the system in a way to give a complete mathematical description of physical phenomena in terms of the fewest principles or entities, that is to find in a variety of physical phenomena essential relations from which future phenomena can be predicted. Physics is thus a result of our quest for order and harmony among physical phenomena.

It is man's best attempt to think vigorously whatever permits of vigorous thinking.
