A social science, uses mathematics and some parts of the scientific method to probe matters of human affairs. As distinct from a pure science, the focus is not on the natural world, but on humanity.

Social sciences include political science, which uses game theory to evaluate the decisionmaking processes of world leaders, and anthropology, which combines archeology (a pure science) and history to investigate how other societies live.
