Without application in the world, the value of social sciences in greatly diminished as it has no utility unless applied

Pro

To begin with, we must define social sciences by taking a look at the multiple disciplines of social science:

1. Anthropology
2. Communication studies
3.Economics
4.Education
5.Geography
6.History
7.Law
8.Linguistics
9.Political science
10.Psychology
11.Sociology

Con makes a blanket assertion that all social sciences have no application in the real world. Therefore, I only need to argue for a couple of the disciplines of social science to disprove this.

Economics:
One of the cornerstones of civilization. If the economy is a mess like it is in the United States, wouldn't it be useful to have people who are experts in economics to help piece things back together. The economy affects almost everyone in the world in one way or another so economics is applicable to the real world.

I don't really need to provide any other evidence as it is Con that makes this blanket assertion that all social sciences don't have value.
