Excerpt

The project "Methods in Political Science" was one of the first to be undertaken by Unesco. This decision to begin with political science, rather than with another branch of the social sciences, was due to several factors. Political science, as a distinct branch from speculation concerning political phenomena or the history of these phenomena, is of fairly recent development, more recent, certainly, than other social sciences such as law, political economy and sociology. As many authors have often pointed out, because of the close relations which exist among all the social disciplines, a certain lack of balance in their development is a drawback to the understanding of social phenomena. Social life is a prism the nature of which is not clearly perceived so long as some of its facets are highly polished while others remain crude and coarse-grained. Hence the need for an effort to raise political science as quickly as possible to the same level as other studies.
