You don't want to miss this - at the very least, view the image of the map of the sciences. And I'm really chuckling to myself over this. Because I was reading recently a post that characterized the whole 'Unity of Science' project from Logical Positivism as being so over - and it is. The reductive program based on underlying general principles (Gardner Campbell, are you reading?) was a complete failure - but now here is the unity of the sciences, in a full colour diagram, as a network of connected data, observations and concepts. Of course, this study only analyzes journal publications, resulting in a small and naive under-representation of science. But it still tells the story.
