Robert Howard

On the other hand, the bad one denominated, soft sciences (social sciences or human sciences), apparently by the lack strictly speaking scientist (which is erroneous), no they have had the same development that its counterpart. He is fundamental to indicate that we did not assert that great discoveries have not been obtained, and excellent investigations in these areas; nevertheless in comparison with the scientific development, demonstrated by physical, natural sciences and their applied disciplines, as well as the promotion that these receive, social sciences have been despised and left second term. What can generate consequences negative as much environmental or social levels, on the matter Robert Howard comments to us: " when the technology ties to mandates of the corporative control, the work often becomes the antithesis of the kingdom of libertad." 2 That is to say, the technology applied without a guide in the social aspects can end at negative consequences. The possible cause is in that social sciences do not represent possibility of productive investments like the others, since their products cannot directly be patented and be commercialized, like a new computer or a medicine, reason why capital with that they count for his investigations comes from governmental bottoms or civil associations. But, why it has not been sufficient with the development of the physical-natural scientific branches and its applied disciplines? In the first place the virtuous spiral of the viable development, when including social aspects, directly forces to us to focus investigations and dissertations in the fields of human sciences. And secondly, (more important that previously perhaps mentioned) it is necessary that the development of the civilization, the application of the scientific knowledge (of any branch), the economic and productive activity, generally the life of the man in society, is channeled in compatible parameters with the model of the viable development. And although a panacea to this point does not exist, yes it is possible to find scientific and objective tools that they help us like species to reach this objective. Here it is where Social Sciences enter game, only through them the civilization will be able to find an advisor in the dark of its way.
