This becomes remarkably clear when we evaluate the NGSS in terms of the influences of the ‘social’ (soft) sciences. Quantitative analysis is often seen as being too limiting or restrictive, while impressions, opinions and the ever-present ‘feelings’ are much more ‘human’ and ‘social’.” ~ J. Nations
