Hmolscience courses

In education, hmolscience courses, or "two cultures courses", are undergraduate and or graduate, two cultures conceptualized, courses themed and or stylized in structural or topic content on one or more areas of the hmolsciences, namely one or more subjects of the humanities based on chemistry, physics, and or thermodynamics.

The following is a listing of known hmolscience themed, content, stylized, and or structured courses:

Nighingale chair (proposal)
Social physics (proposed)Oxford
1874-1891 Conceived by Florence Nightingale as a course based on the work of social physics pioneer Adolphe Quetelet; see: Nightingale Chair of Social Physics.

Social Mechanics (University of Geneva)
Social MechanicsUniversity of GenevaLeon Winiarski1894-1900Politics, economics, and sociology based on the Clausius inequality. (Ѻ) [1]

Harvard History (banner, Adams)
Physicochemical Social Dynamics (proposed) (Ѻ) Harvard
1908-1910Conceived by Henry Adams (possibly taught by him in some respects) as history taught via Gibbs and social phase theory; see: A Letter to American Teachers of History (1910)

Mathematical Economics (banner)
Mathematical EconomicsHarvardEdwin Wilson1934-39Steam engine and physical chemistry based economics; specifically economics based on Gibbs' equation 133.

Princeton university (social physics)
Social PhysicsPrincetonJohn Q. Stewart1945-1955A physics-based formulation of sociology; more of project than a course offered to students directly, seemingly (see: Princeton Department of Social Physics).

Econophysics (University of Warsaw)
Econophysics and Sociophysics: Students SeminarUniversity of Warsaw (Ѻ) Ryszard Kutner 2006-present An interdisciplinary and panoramic seminar (Ѻ) showing how the various academic centers and research methods used in physics or related are used in areas such as economics and sociology; speakers are doctoral researchers and experienced researchers; learn and discuss the concepts, theories, models, methods and techniques, especially interdisciplinary, applied in the wider physics as well as in economics and sociology to the study of complex systems mainly. In addition, the development of the ability to analyze a variety of empirical data which is manipulated in these areas. (Ѻ) Undergrad Graduate

SOS 623 (Korea University)
SOS 623: Seminar on Social Thermodynamics Korea University
2010-present Held in the form of seminar; pros and cons of general systems theory; introduction to a theory of social thermodynamics and its applications. [2]Graduate

BYU sociology and physics
Science Phy 453: Sociology and PhysicsBrigham Young UniversityDavid Samuels Barnard2011A sociophysics stylized course, whose reading materials contain works such as: Mieczyslaw Dobija’s 2004 “Theories of Chemistry and Physics Applied to Developing an Economic Theory of Intellectual Capital”; the 2005 work of Shyam Sunder on using the minimization principles of physics in economics; and Jing Chen’s 2008 “Understanding Social Systems: a Free Energy Perspective”, on human free energy theories, e.g. the related works of: John Bryant (2007), Bikas Chakrabarti (2005), Charles Hall (1986), Paul Colinvaux, Erich Muller (1998), Jurgen Mimkes (2005), Libb Thims (2007), and the Rossini debate works of Harold Leonard (2006) and Frederick Rossini (1971).
