APPROACHING THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN NATURAL AND SOCIAL SCIENCESScience is generally understood as an endeavor to understand, explain and predict the world we live in using distinctive methods of enquiry in an attempt to construct theories. It is, however, not easy to find a set of features that define what separates sciences from other areas like fortune telling, etc. Okasha suggests that there are no fixed features defining different disciplines science, however there are some features which are possessed by most of the sciences. Based on some of these features, we will contrast two scientific branches, namely the natural and social sciences. According to authors such as Anzenbacher and Chmielewicz, both of them are real sciences, as opposed to formal sciences, the latter of which solve imaginary problems and include, for instance, mathematics or Theoretical Computer Science.
