A 1928 synopsis of hmolscience, namely the “mechanistic school” of contemporary sociology, according to Pitirim Sorokin, the founder of Harvard’s sociology department, comprised of social mechanics, social physics, social energetics (aka social thermodynamics), and mathematical sociology.[1]

In science, hmolscience (TR:1113) (LH:40) (TL:1153), from hmol- + -science, is the study of humans from the advanced perspective “molecular” point of view, via chemistry, physics, and thermodynamics, each person conceived, objectively and unbiasedly, as surface-attached animate molecules or powered chemicals.


The term "hmolscience" (Thims, 2010), from "hmol" (Thims, 2007), from "mol" (Nernst, 1895)[2], was introduced as a needed umbrella term for the growing number of 100+ so-called "two-cultures namesakes".[3]

“Ooh, I have found a fascinating and deep rabbit hole while doing some writing-related research, specifically on ‘anti-entropy’. The Encyclopedia of Human Thermodynamics. @eschwitz, this looks right up your alley too. Hmolscience.”
