Game theory for reformation of behavioral science based on a mistake

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 30 (1):24-25 (2007)
Abstract
Gintis assumes the behavioral (=social) sciences are in disarray, and so proposes a theory for their unification. Examination of the unity of the physical sciences reveals he misunderstands the unity of science in general, and so fails to see that the social sciences are already unified with the physical sciences. Another explanation of the differences between them is outlined. (Published Online April 27 2007).
