"What's missing from the Nobel prizes? Scientists weigh in" - NBC News. 10/06/2013.
When Alfred Nobel established the Nobel prizes in 1895, the categories were physics, chemistry, physiology or medicine, literature, and peace. This story reports on a poll of international scientists asked to comment on how these categories might be improved to represent current science. Daniel Kruger (an evolutionary psychologist) says: "I would change Physiology or Medicine to Life Sciences; Economics to Social Sciences; Physics and Chemistry to Physical Sciences; also maybe create a new, more applied, category for Technology; and Literature ... maybe change to Humanities. Keep Peace. We need as much as we can get."
