Mathematical Social Sciences: An Oxymoron?

This series of lectures by Donald Saari sound intimidating, but are actually very easy to understand. In particular I recommend the first one, where Saari explains how voting schemes are subject to the "aggregation paradox" so that most times the result of an election reflects the counting method more than the voters' preferences!
