The questions that come to mind are many:

  1. Should  disciplines like political science, sociology,  anthropology, history and  philosophy,
  2.  for example,  simply merge into one colossal, homogenous unit called  PSAHP,  or 
  3. something to that effect, or should  they keep their individual identities and disciplinary boundaries.
       2.  Are there conceptual,  methodological, procedural, organizational distinctions that make these disciplines
             unique or are these boundaries artificial?

       3. How important is specialization within these disciplines? In history we have  thematic  and regional
            specialists. Areas of specialization include military,  environmental, intellectual, diplomatic, art
            and social history.  Indigenous Knowledges, Women's history, Oral history, public history,
            history of science and technology and legal history are also among history's  fields of specialization.
            Genomic history is an emerging discipline. So should all these fields of specialization be encouraged
            to merge into one? Is it possible?
 
            

Hearty congratulations on this appointment as Extraordinary Professor of Political Science.

Create new areas?Perhaps so -
 and that is to  state that there 
is such a thing as specialization. 
I was simply pointing to 
the existing framework, though.
As for awards, I don’t take the 
Nobel Peace Prize seriously.
Sorry. Warmongers have 
been on that list. Who is doing 
the validation and for what
reason?

But we shouldn’t throw
out the baby with the bath
water. Some awards are
to be taken more seriously 
than others.
