But social science and humanities are more than "knowing what"

Rather, I don't think there is much difference btw knowing how and knowing what.

Knowing why is more important.

Social sciences are really simply "knowing what".  You get an overview of the current knowledge base so you can do more research.  The overview is the "what".  That's all you need to succeed in social sciences.

I hope the Economics and Psychology Professors at MIT would hit this guy on his head :)
