In schools, Princeton school of social physics, or "Princeton social physics school", refers to the early “social physics” political science theories, e.g. separation of powers, developed by America's 4th president James Madison, America's 28th president Woodrow Wilson, among others, and the short-lived “Princeton Department of Social Physics”, ran at Princeton from 1945-1960 under the direction of John Q. Stewart.

A few noted Princeton students include Princeton student Zachary Hatch, and his 1992 theories about the thermodynamics of the rise and fall of civilizations, and Christopher Hirata, and his 2000 physics of relationships theory.

In American demographics and geography sciences, a spinoff or variant of the Princeton school, via the work of geographer William Warntz, in association with Stewart, is the so-called “social physics school”, generally focused on demographic gravitation and social gravitation theories.
