Leslie Paul Thiele sets out the scope and methods of political theory, understood as a tradition of historical, normative, interpretative, and analytic thought concerned with the nature of collective human life. He provides a survey of the discipline and its major figures, and he approaches the tradition from various points of view that engage readers in independent political thought.
