Sample text

From the paradigm-setting texts of William Dunning (190220) to the protobehavioral arguments of Charles Merriam (1925) to George Sabine's influential history of political theory (1937), the scientific and political ideology of the discipline had remained remarkably uniform. Despite Page 13 some exceptions, the discipline was generally politically conservative although maybe at times intellectually radical in its dreams of an instrumental social science allied with a national state for the solution of social and political problems.

The historical situation seemed to signal increasing urgency about the need to realize the scientific potential of the discipline, but there was at the same time a challenge to the authority of both the general symbol of science and the specific image that had characterized political science. Page 17 It was in this context that political scientists entered into a critique of the study of the history of political theory and sought to develop a more articulate vision of their scientific commitments.
