How Reliable Are the Social Sciences? The Stone is a forum for contemporary philosophers and other thinkers on issues both timely and timeless. Public policy debates often involve appeals to results of work in social sciences like economics and sociology.

Beware the journalistically exciting result. How much authority should we give to such work in our policy decisions? A rational assessment of a scientific result must first take account of the broader context of the particular science involved. Second, and even more important, there is our overall assessment of work in a given science in comparison with other sciences. Consider, for example, the report President Obama referred to. But how reliable is even the best work on the effects of teaching?

What Should We Call Social Media OK, I am apparently very late to the party, but this was a revelation and I can’t just not share. I apologize in advance if I’m posting something old. So you know this really stupid thing that happens with links? It’s actually the worst thing in the world. WELL, to fix the problem, all you have to do is copy & paste the link here. BRB, crying from happiness. Peace and Justice Studies Association The Peace and Justice Studies Association (PJSA) is a non-profit organization that was formed in 2001 as a result of a merger of the Consortium on Peace research, Education and Development (COPRED) and the Peace Studies Association (PSA). Both organizations provided leadership in the broadly defined field of peace, conflict and justice studies. We are dedicated to bringing together academics, K-12 teachers and grassroots activists to explore alternatives to violence and share visions and strategies for peacebuilding, social justice, and social change. PJSA also serves as a professional association for scholars in the field of peace and conflict resolution studies, and is the North-American affiliate of the International Peace Research Association. A copy of our by-laws is available here. PJSA holds annual elections to fill open positions on its Board of Directors.
