I agree totally with your comments. What may be objectionable is the use of
terms like social science and political science. There is nothing wrong with
referring to them as social studies and political studies.

But what's objectionable about the former terms? Or for that matter, with
physical studies or life studies (other than unfamiliarity)?

Shalom
