  3. 3. INTRODUCTION POLITICS and HISTORY According to Heywood ( 2011): POLITICS is 1. inextricably linked to the phenomena of conflict and cooperation 2. the existence of rival opinions, different wants, competing needs and opposing interests guarantees disagreement about the rules under which people live 3.as the art of government, as public affairs generally, as the non-violent resolution of disputes, and as power and the distribution of resources (Heywood 2007).
  4. 4. According to Magstadt (2010), Politics is: The process by which a community selects rulers and empowers them to make decisions, takes action to attain common goals, and reconciles conflicts within the community. • According to De Leon (1999) It is the systematic study of state and government POLITICAL ( Greek word “POLIS”- city or sovereign state and SCIENCE Latin word “SCIRE” means to know)
  5. 5. Politics is defined in such different ways: as the exercise of power, the exercise of authority, the making of collective decisions, the allocation of scarce resources, the practice of deception and manipulation, and so on. The virtue of the definition advanced in this text, 'the making, preserving and amending of general social rules',
  6. 6. Thus, according to Ellen Grigsby (2011) Politics can be a realm of surprises and apparent contradictions. As you study political science you may find that your conception of politics has been influenced by many factors. For example, consider how differently you might view your life, your goals, and your attitudes about politics if you could be transported across the boundaries of identity, gender, nationality, age, and/or economic status.
  7. 7. : According to the Father of Political Science, ARISTOTLE Politics is about political system on how to classify and evaluate them the political science simply meant political investigation; thus, a political scientist was one who sought, through systematic inquiry, to understand the truth about politics.
  8. 8. HISTORY History is not just knowing something—names, dates, facts—about the past. The word history comes from the Greek word historia for ‘‘inquiring,’’ or asking questions. The questioning of the past has been an important tool for gaining information about ourselves. Indirectly, it helps us to better define the present. (Pavlac N.D) it is the past of mankind (Gottchalk) and the story of human experience
  9. 9. ELEMENTS OF HISTORY 1. MAN 2. PLACE 3. PERIOD (TIME ELEMENT) 4. SOURCES: PRIMARY AND SECONDARY SOURCES

  12. 12. Conclusion Thus, political science is about the scientific study of political phenomena. It has been variously defined as “the art of the possible,” by many political scientist, they explained it as the study of “who gets what, when, and how,” as the “authoritative allocation of values,” and in countless other ways.
  13. 13. History is made conscious of the PRESENT, yes it is studying the PAST happenings of a certain events, places, people. But the realization of it is in TODAY because understanding it is a new horizon of interpreting the essence of our foundation. It is the same as the TREE! Yes TREE as a TREE--- RPC 2013 WHY A TREE?? “Enable for us to taste the fruit we must know how to plant”—RPC 2013
