This book provides a philosophical analysis of each objective of political science: the pursuit of knowledge, involvement in a discourse about politics, moral evaluation of political concepts, and the resolution of practical, political problems. The author presents a synthesis between politics as a scientific discipline and a philosophical one; he clarifies the debate about its scientific status and methodologies. This book will serve well as an introductory political science text because of its interdisciplinary nature.
