The Methodology of Political Theory
We are the leading scholarly society concerned with the research and teaching of political science in Europe, headquartered in the UK with a global membership. Our groups and networks are pushing the boundaries of specialist sub-fields of political science, helping to nurture diversity and inclusivity across the discipline. This unique event has helped tens of thousands of scholars over nearly five decades hone research, grow networks and secure publishing contracts. An engaging platform for discussion, debate and thinking; Europe's largest annual gathering of political scientists from across the globe. A comprehensive programme of cutting-edge qualitative and quantitative methodological training delivered by experts across two annual events. Our Standing Groups organise a range of annual events, including summer schools, conferences and workshops, open to all.

Political Theory: Methods and Approaches
After distinguishing political theory from related fields, such as political science, moral philosophy, and legal theory, the article discusses the analysis of political concepts. It then turns to the notions of principles and theories, as distinct from concepts, and reviews the methods of assessing such principles and theories e. Finally, it looks at a recent debate on how abstract and idealized political theory should be, and assesses the significance of disagreement in political theory. The discussion is carried out from an angle inspired by the philosophy of science.

Political science , occasionally called politology , is a discipline of social science which deals with systems of governance , and the analysis of political activities, political thoughts, associated constitutions and political behavior. Political science is generally divided into distinct sub-disciplines, namely domestic politics and government , comparative politics including area studies , international relations , political theory , political economy , political methodology , public administration , public policy. Comparative politics is the science of comparison and teaching of different types of constitutions, political actors, legislature and associated fields, all of them from an intrastate perspective. International relations deals with the interaction between nation-states as well as intergovernmental and transnational organizations. Political theory is more concerned with contributions of various classical and contemporary thinkers and philosophers.
Political science today is a dynamic discipline. Its substance, theory and methods have all changed radically in recent decades. It is much expanded in range and scope and in the variety of new perspectives — and new variants of old ones — that it encompasses. The sheer volume of work being published, and the increasing degree of its specialization, however, make it difficult for political scientists to maintain a clear grasp of the state of debate beyond their own particular subdisciplines. The Political Analysis series is intended to provide a channel for different parts of the discipline to talk to one another and to new generations of students. Our aim is to publish books that provide introductions to, and exemplars of, the best work in various areas of the discipline. A particular priority is to facilitate intellectual exchange between academic communities in different parts of the world.
Political Theory: Methods and Approaches. David Leopold and Marc Stears, eds. Oxford: Oxford University Press, While acknowledging that the Cambridge School, Leo Strauss, and Eric Voegelin have made methods essential to their approach to political philosophy, Leopold and Stears point out that most political theorists and philosophers lack any significant training in political theory methodology when they were graduate students. Political Theory is to remedy this situation by providing a variety of methods and approaches to political theory in ten chapters written by different authors.
Political theorists are too often silent on questions of method and approach. David Leopold and Marc Stears have assembled a distinguished group of contributors to break that silence and to explain and defend the research methods they utilise in their own work. The result is a rich and varied collection which does not suggest that there is only one right way to conduct political theory, but rather introduces readers to many of the often unelaborated methods andapproaches that currently inform the work of leading scholars in the field. Amongst the topics covered are the complex and contested connections between political theory and a range of adjacent disciplines - including moral philosophy, the empirical social sciences, the history of political thought, theworld of 'real' politics, critical social theory, and ideology. Both individually and as a collection, these essays will promote understanding and provoke further debate amongst students and established scholars alike.

О Боже, я вам так благодарна. Беккер растерялся. Очевидно, он ошибался. Девушка обвила его руками. - Это лето было такое ужасное, - говорила она, чуть не плача. - Я вам так признательна.
От него так и веяло холодом. - Ermordung. Он… он был?. - Да, убит. - Но… но это невозможно! - У немца перехватило дыхание.
Какова твоя роль во всем. Сьюзан объяснила, что перехватываемые сообщения обычно исходят от правительств потенциально враждебных стран, политических фракций, террористических групп, многие из которых действуют на территории США. Эти сообщения обычно бывают зашифрованы: на тот случай, если они попадут не в те руки, - а благодаря КОМИНТ это обычно так и происходит. Сьюзан сообщила Дэвиду, что ее работа заключается в изучении шифров, взламывании их ручными методами и передаче расшифрованных сообщений руководству.
Выходит, нас атакует всего лишь первый набросок червя Танкадо.
Estoy bien. Человек смерил его сердитым взглядом: - Pues sientate. Тогда сядьте. Вокруг послышалось шушуканье, старик замолчал и снова стал смотреть прямо перед. Беккер прикрыл глаза и сжался, раздумывая, сколько времени продлится служба.
Не знаю, о ком вы говорите, - поправил его Беккер, подзывая проходившую мимо официантку. Он купил две бутылки пива и протянул одну Двухцветному. Панк изумленно взглянул на бутылку, потом отпил изрядный глоток и тупо уставился на Беккера. - Чего вы от меня хотите, мистер.
Кто-то записал его, и я подумал, что это гостиница.
