McIntyre calls for a revolution in the social sciences - it should be more like the physical sciences, with religious and political biases put aside for dispassionate research to discover the true answers to why people behave the way they do. An important argument, but McIntyre resorts to practically calling those who disagree names: "Are they afraid that a science of human behavior would somehow dehumanize us, and are they therefore motivated to find an argument against it?" Nyah, nyah, nyah. He is also somewhat repetitive. Despite these reservations, his case is persuasive, and the book is worth a read by anyone interested in the topic or working in the field of the social sciences.
