I am new to this so I may ask this question wrong or without enough detail.
The world I am creating goes like this: Humans developed to the point that robots run basically everything via A. I.s. As a result, humans no longer have to work or do anything for themselves (other than the main biological functions). Because of the lack of challenge and really “living”, the suicide rate has grown exponentially from boredom and depression. The A. I.s are attempting to figure out what is wrong but have nothing in their databanks that resembles psychology, sociology, etc. to reference for this problem because it wasn’t developed like on earth here. So my question goes like this:
Is it plausible for a world very similar to ours, to develop mainly in the so called hard sciences (physics, math, biology, chemistry, etc) and basically ignore the soft sciences (psychology, sociology, anthropology)?
What would be a good reason for this development?
Would this world still be similar to our own or would there be significant changes to the society that developed?
