Consciousness of Problem,Principle and Methodology in Humanity and Social Sciences Research

LAO Kai-sheng(School of Education,BNU,Beijing 100875,China)  
Modern natural sciences circumscribed its own disciplinary scope by assuming the definiteness of scientific conceptions and provided a rational structure and strict methodological principle.Social sciences,influenced by natural sciences,have always been troubled by such an indefiniteness in the development of the past over one hundred years.Regularity is,however,an illusionary understanding of definiteness for social sciences;it is a reflection of the modern scientific view that has extended over to social sciences.Social sciences should not pursue the assumptions that do not exist in reality,but reveal the relation of interest behind the seemingly natural facts and hence a series of value selection activities.Social sciences are not sciences in the strict sense.Rather,they are specialized research areas.Social sciences need to set up professional research consciousness different from that of natural sciences,namely,the consciousness of problems,principles and methodologies.The methodological property of social sciences is that "regularity is uncertain but there is a routine to follow".
