Question description

You should all now be familiar with Postman's objections to the disciplines within the social sciences. We know that he views sociology, for example, as a form of story telling with a moral framework attached rather than a science. And that's all well and good but now that you've read the third chapter of Andersen that reviews the research methodology employed by sociologists, it should be easier for you to respond to Postman's objections that the methods aren't very substantial, not very scientific. Shouldn't it?  Exactly how might someone like Andersen respond to the criticism by Postman of the methods used by sociologists?
