Definition of Politics
Politics is the
exercise of power, the
science of government,
the making of
collective decisions,
the allocation of
scarce resources, and
the practice of
deception and
manipulation
Politics is defined as
the activities and
affairs of the state
and government; it is a
social activity
associated with the
practice of government,
search for conflict
resolution,
administration of
public affairs, and
assumption of power or
authority.
From the Greek word “polis” which means
city-state - a small independent self-
contained political society.
also known as the heart of Political
Science

Introduction to Politics
The Four Main
Insights of Politics


Politics concerns the structure, function, process, and
practice of the government; how leaders perform their
vital roles in the society.
POLITICS AS THE ART OF GOVERNMENT
Politics is the conduct and management of public
interest; relates to anything that concerns people in
general (such as laws, welfare, and safety).
POLITICS AS PUBLIC INTEREST
The Four Main
Insights of Politics


Politics attempts to resolve conflict through discussion,
compromise, bargaining, and consensus, wherein people
arrive at a binding decision.
POLITICS AS COMPROMISE AND CONSENSUS
Politics involves the use of authority and influence to
advance interest, perform functions in the state, or
distribute resources.
POLITICS AS POWER
Introduction to Politics
The quick answer is NO.
QUESTION: Can we truly
avoid and escape Politics?
We cannot escape POLITICS
Politics manifests in every way it can:
distribution of power among you and
other family members - by delegating
family roles, it implies a hierarchy
of power and authority
politics in school - although the
admin holds the main power, the
teachers mainly drive influence over
the students
rules and regulations in the
community - following these powerful
mandates only implies that you
surrender a part of your personhood
to contribute to peace and order
Introduction to Politics
“Man in nature is a political animal.”
- Aristotle
Methodology of
Studying Politics
OK
Let's Discuss
Politics is complex as a field of discipline, it needs
a thorough investigation, analysis, and study in order
to come up with the most concrete definitions and
conclusions.


Science is the main key to understanding the general
dynamics of Politics.
Science is the acquisition and application of knowledge
about the world through systematic methodology.
Politics in Political Science
systematic study of the state and government; it is a social
science that deals with the theory and practice of
government at the local, national, and international levels.
It also includes the study of power, influence, authority,
ideology, and systems of governance
Here in the Philippines, we target to understand
politics through this lens by tapping on the following
subtopics:
Government and its typologies
Political Ideologies
State, Nationa, and Globalization
Power, Influence, and Authority
History of Philippine Politics
Basic Concepts of the
Constitution
Philippine Constitution
