CHAPTER 1 – POLITICS AND KNOWLEDGE
INTRODUCTION TO POLITICAL SCIENCE
Sekar Rizki Wibowo – KKI_B
What is politics? Politics is a process by which a group of people, whose opinions or interests might be different from each other, reach collective decisions that are generally regarded as binding on the group and enforced as a common policy.
The basis of political knowledge always came from three important sources, which are:
1. Authority : Involves the appeal of any documents, tradition, or person that is believed to be an important source of politics or some explanation regarding a particular issue.
2. Personal thought : Relies on assumption of human brains that may

The Evolution of Political Approaches
“By 2012, it has become impossible to correctly interpret campaigns strategy without understanding revolution in tactics.” (12) Political strategy has been around since voting was established, and over the years the approaches have evolved to meet the political demand. These approaches have evolved from the traditional “wise man” approach to a social science- centric approach. The “wise man” approach was very critical in the start but soon began to fall behind the curve, and to meet this demeaned and changes of time a new approach needed to move in. the social science-centric approaches provide the basis for more successful campaigns, and many

It is the study of the history and methodology of the discipline of history.
The term historiography also denotes a body of historical work on a specialized topic. Scholars discuss historiography topically – such as the “historiography of Catholicism,” the “historiography of early Islam,” or the “historiography of China" – as well as specific approaches such as political history and social history. Beginning in the nineteenth century, at the ascent of academic history, a corpus of historiography literature developed.
Furay and Salevouris (1988) define historiography as "the study of the way history has been and is written — the history of historical writing... When you study

CONTRIBUTION OF THE BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES
The behavioural science approach is concerned with the social and psychological aspects of human behaviour in organisation. The understanding of human behavior was enhanced by contributions not only from the traditional disciplines of psychology, sociology, and anthropology, but also from social economics, political science, linguistics, and education. The interrelationships of these various disciplines are now referred to collectively as the “behavioral sciences.”
The behavioral science approach is oriented toward economic objectives, concerned with the total climate, and consistent with the development of interpersonal competence. It is a

parties. What is in permanent tension in current societies is the relationship among power,
conflict and authority (Lasswell and Kaplan, 1950). Political elites have to deal with power
institutions and “shape” the political system. In some cases the elites elaborate strong rules
in order to maintain their power avoiding political competition. In other cases, the elites
must compete among them and/or with others citizens. Thus, is society controlled by a small
group of insiders? This is the paradox of political elites: between political representation and
the maximization of their own interests.

Positive Accounting Theory and Science
Though the above idea is general, early empirical studies of accounting choices investigated the impact of variables related to earnings-based bonus plans, debt, and the political process affecting the firm. Three major hypotheses tested are as follows: (a) the bonus plan hypothesis, (b) the debt-equity hypothesis, and (c) political cost hypothesis (Watts

If the hartal is constitutional right, does our constitutional right give the political parties to kill innocent people and destroying many families? No. So all political parties should stand forward to pass a bill to ban hartal.
The net loss in one day’s hartal, according to a study published in the Chittagong University Journal and Social Science, is around TK. 500 crore.

Scientism and Technocracy in Brave New World
Brave New World is well recognized as a dystopian novel, in which Aldous Huxley satirically criticized scientism and technocracy. In this new world, science and technology was paramount. It dominated all aspects of human life. Humans were mass produced in laboratory and factories; human moral value were moulded by sleeping teaching; human emotions were controlled by soma. The overuse of science and technology reduced humans to one-dimensional man without individuality and the ability of critical thinking. Human beings were used as tools for political and economic purposes. The thesis is to study scientism and

Eitan Hersh, a “political science professor at Yale University” said that “people like being targeting in many ways” (Brennan). In one survey in Ohio they found that 64% said “their support for a candidate would decrease if they found out a candidate was microtargeting them differently than their neighbor” (Brennan). It is possible that voters feel this is a way of cheating or getting a little too personal. Targeting consumers for products is much less personal than stereotyping to try to win your vote. It

Question: How does international political economy impact on your life in Belgium?
International political economy also known as global political economy is an academic discipline within the social sciences that analyzes international relations in combination with political economy. As an interdisciplinary field it draws on many distinct academic schools, most notably political science and economics, but also sociology, history, and cultural studies. International political economy is concerned with the ways in which political forces (states, institutions, individuals, etc.) shape the systems through which economic interactions are expressed, and equally the effect that

But the administrative structure and techniques cannot be studied without proper reference to the environment in which public administration is working as well as the human factor.

The relation between sociology and anthropology is widely recognized today. In fact, anthropologist Kroeber pointed out that the two- sciences are twin sisters. Robert Redfied writes that viewing the whole United States, one say that the relations between sociology and anthropology are closer than those between anthropology and political science, which is partly due to greater similarity in ways of work.
Anthropology is a general science like sociology. 'The word anthropology' is derived from two Greek words, 'anthropos' and 'logos' meaning the study of man. More precisely, it is defined by Kroeber as the science of man and his works and behavior. Anthropology is concerned not with

The world had outgrown just one religion therefore, when Martin Luther and King Henry decided to separate themselves from the church many more had emerged. Secularism identifies it’s self as something called 'religion' and separate it from the domains of the state, the economy and science.
Secularism is the realization that God’s will be done plus the natural evolution of universal morality.

There is arguments on both sides regarding the extent to which secularisation (decline of religion) is present in the world today, some believe it is associated with the modern day societies. Modernists feel the same way seeing our societies as focusing more on developments into science and rational research. Because of this, many sociologists see religion as being “incompatible” with our societies.

Each of the four groups is similar in regards to a lack in economic equality from the non- Hispanic population in the US. These groups do differ in political aspirations and participatory desires in US politics; some preferring to take a more active approach to politics.

He realized that it will take more than just paintings or books to instantly change society’s way of thinking, so he joined forces with his friends to form a political movement which was the birth the Utilitarianism. The political party’s initial name was the "Philosophical Radicals", which was soon changed to Utilitarian.

Sociology was born not when good and evil were defined by what is useful or harmful to society, but rather when this correlation, exalted by the utilitarians, was placed in doubt because individualism seemed to have become a menace to society. This disjunction of the actor and the system led the most radical thinkers to conceive of a system without actors, dominated by determinisms and impersonal powers, and others to describe actors without a system, constructing in a normative void the forms of their interaction with actors who were strangers.

Health policy debates are replete with discussions of federalism, most often when advocates of reform put their hopes in states. But health policy literature is remarkably silent on the question of allocation of authority, rarely asking which levels of government ought to lead. We draw on the larger literatures about federalism, found mostly in political science and law, to develop a set of criteria for allocating health policy authority between states and the federal government. They are social justice, procedural democracy, compatibility with value pluralism, institutional capability, and economic sustainability. Of them, only procedural democracy and compatibility with value

, the Nigerian Economic Society, and the Nigerian Political Science Association. Many of these associations were mainly concerned with matters relating to the professional interests of their members. In pursuing professional concerns, however, they articulated and demanded important political actions. Between 1983 and 1985, for example, the NMA called a strike of medical doctors to demand an improvement in health care delivery. Its leaders were detained and the union banned until 1986. The NBA has been at the forefront of the movement for the observance of the rule of law and human rights in Nigeria. Most other associations held annual conferences at which positions were taken on national
