(p.50) Chapter 2 Political Science: The History of the Discipline
A New Handbook of Political Science

Gabriel A. Almond

Oxford University Press

A historical overview of the discipline, from its foundations in ancient theorists to contemporary political scientists. Traces the contributions––philosophical, theoretical, and methodological––across the discipline's history. Challenges a view of the discipline's development as being built on methodological dissent, offering a picture of its development on the basis of pluralist interaction.

Keywords:   dissent, history, methodology, pluralism, political science
