Add comment on:Theory and Political Science
Theory hardly plays any role in political science. Mathematics has a firm hold on the discipline. You can only publish if you mathematicize. However mathematics doesn't have any answers to questions about justice. Quantitative approaches are only one part of political science. Central questions (which political system is just? In what society do we want to live?) cannot be explored well under time and result pressure.
