## RESPONSE TO TURCO AND ZUCKERMAN’S “VERSTEHEN FOR SOCIOLOGY”

I predict that sociologists will have to choose between story telling and science. Turco and Zuckerman, in contrast, predict that no such choice will be forc...

## VERSTEHEN FOR SOCIOLOGY: COMMENT ON WATTS

We seek only to demonstrate that his observations do not imply that the pursuit of verstehen is a diversion for the field. To the contrary, we argue that the...

## Duncan Watts’ AMA Interview

On the other hand a single high impact paper is worth many low impact papers, so from a career perspective it’s not necessarily a waste of time to devote a y...

## Common Sense and Sociological Explanations

Sociologists rely on common sense more than they realize. Moreover, this unacknowledged reliance causes serious problems for their explanations of social act...

## Computational Social Science: Exciting Progress and Future Directions

In spite of many thousands of published papers, there’s been surprisingly little progress on the “big” questions that motivated the field of computational so...

## Should social science be more solution-oriented?

I argue that one way for social science to make progress is to adopt a more solution-oriented approach, starting first with a practical problem and then aski...

## Computational Journalism

Journalists look for the unusual handful of individual items that might point toward a news story or an emerging narrative thread.

## Estimating ERGM using PyMC

This post aims to analyzing networks with ERGMs using PyMC in python.

## 理解HITS算法

Hits算法通过迭代的方法来计算权威度a和导航度h。其中： 1. 节点i的权威度$a_i$利用指向它的节点的在上一轮的导航度hlast和链接的权重来决定。 2. 节点i的导航度$h_i$利用指向它指向的节点在这一轮的权威度$a_i$和链接的权重来决定。
