Framework for Unification of Behavioural Sciences

A paper from a few years back by Herbert Gintnis

"Each of the behavioral disciplines contributes strongly to understanding human behavior. Taken separately and at face value, however, they offer partial, conflicting, and incompatible models. >From a scientific point of view, it is scandalous that this situation was tolerated throughout most of the Twentieth Century. Fortunately, there is currently a strong current of
unification based on both mathematical models and common methodological principles for gathering empirical data on human behavior and human nature."
