Oddly, I feel satisfied with my place in the scheme of things. I don't think my field is just applied psychology but, hey, who wants to have an inter-disciplinary slap fight first thing in the morning?
Given the things I see written about us,* I'm just happy to see XKCD classing us as a science, you know?
* For example, I recently noticed a sociologist critiquing a textbook because it "...had a heavy focus on sociology as a science, which painted a very unidimensional picture of the discipline." Perhaps I'm in the minority,** but the whole reason I did sociology rather than, say, literary theory is that I want to study human society scientifically. That's kinda the whole point of the field.***
** Also, I'm a cranky bastard. I have no grudge against the "offending" sociologist and rather think she's promising... insofar as a moron like me can say that, anyway.
*** I'm suddenly reminded of a story from a conference I attended in my subject area. We'll call that area "wanking" for simplicity's sake. Anyway, I was talking to this guy who was attending for the first time and he said, "This wanking conference is great but all of the papers keep talking about wanking." And that's odd... why?
