Actually, that's quite a lot the same as calling it a "science".  As
though things that get to count as "real" sciences don't have their
models overturned repeatedly or generationally.  As though we could
proceed to social analysis from some perspective other than the honest
attempt to establish the laws of the operation of a given system, knowing
all along that we won't ever get it just right.
