In existographies, Mirza Arshad Ali Beg (23- BE) (1932- ACM) (SPE:4|66AE) (FET:26) (SNE:2) (EPD:F11) (CR:204) (LH:6) (TL:234|#35), aka “Arshad Beg” (common name)[1] or Mirza Beg" (LH:24) (Thims, 2014), is an Indian-born Pakistani organometallic chemist and physico-chemical sociologist noted for his 1987 book New Dimensions in Sociology: a Physico-Chemical Approach to Human Behavior, wherein he presents the first general outline of "physicochemical sociology" (see: two-cultures disciplines), a physicochemical humanities conceptualized subject, likening society to a chemical solution and explains human behavior in terms of physicochemical laws.[2]

Overview

In 1987, Beg, in his New Dimensions in Sociology: a Physico-Chemical Approach to Human Behavior, presented the first general outline of "physicochemical sociology" (see: two cultures namesakes), a physicochemical humanities conceptualized subject, likening society to a chemical solution and explains human behavior in terms of physicochemical laws.[2]

Thims

In 2014, Libb Thims discovered the work of Beg, and they engaged into dialogue.[3]

In 2019, Thims (EPD:M12), from 16 to 19 Sep, went to Karachi, Pakistan, to meet Beg (EPD:F11) and to interview him, on camera, about his New Dimensions in Sociology, which resulted in 48 video parts, totaling 22-hours (1,297-min) of educational viewing time.[4] Curiously, during the meeting, Thims discovered that Beg, like himself, was an EPD-product, a phenomenon common to Lavoisier, Newton, and Boyle, three other chemistry founders.

  1. Note: in 2014, when Thims discovered Beg, he started his existography as "Mirza Beg", only later to learn that Beg prefers to be called "Arshad Beg", with Arshad as his first name; which Thims listened to in person when he visited Beg's household in Pakistan (2019); redirect issues with the Hmolpedia 2020 wiki software, however, prevented the name change; on 5 May 66AE, Thims, with the new MediaWiki redirects working good, changed the the name.
