Ayer's lecture 'asks why the social sciences have failed to achieve the apparent success of the natural sciences. Ayer’s conclusion is relatively modest: the fact that human action has a social meaning does not rule out the type of determinism that would allow scientific explanation of human behaviour' (The Oxford Handbook of Analytic Philosophy, p. 810).
