Who watches the watchers?

Social scientists observe us, and report on Human behaviour. They observe how we think, and the biases and prejudices that creep into our thinking. These days, now that religion has become less important in many societies, social scientists - particularly the psychologists and sociologists - are becomming the guardians of our morality, informing us who and what is normal or abnormal.

But who keeps an eye on the social scientists? Themselves? What if most of them share the same sort of biases?
