Description

The relationship of political theory to social science would seem to be a simple subject. If one were to stop at basic classifications, then the relationship of political theory to social science would be very easy to conceive. Political science is one of the social sciences. It is a subset of social science. Within political science, political theory is an area of study. Therefore, political theory is also a social science. On a purely definitional level, it seems that one needs to examine the issue no further than that. However, this text seeks to complicate this supposedly simple lesson.
