  Aristotle's Political Theory
Politics is a practical science, since it is concerned with the noble action or happiness of the citizens (although it resembles a productive science in that it seeks to create, preserve, and reform political systems.) Aristotle thus understands politics as a normative or prescriptive discipline rather than as a purely empirical or descriptive inquiry.
The analogy is imprecise because politics, in the strict sense of legislative science, is a form of practical wisdom or prudence, but valid to the extent that the politician produces, operates, and maintains a legal system according to universal principles (EN VI.8 and X.9).
Hence, Aristotelian political science is not confined to the ideal system, but also investigates the second-best constitution, the one which is the best that most city-states are capable of supporting.

 Latin American Politics
As a social science, political science differs from other disciplines in that its basic object of study is the State and the way individuals and groups of individuals relate, interact and respond to the State.
Political parties, institutions and collective behavior of individuals are central components in the field.
While political science is a discipline that uses an ample set of methodological approaches, the theoretical frameworks utilized should be applicable to political processes regardless of the geographic region where they take place.

This conceptualization of something as being non state or private or independent, as being wholly a political, is incredibly political in terms of shaping loyalties, shaping attitudes and redividing the market, and I think that's one of the really interesting things that's being played out.

As of this writing (January 6), it is too early to know what threats to AIDS research, care, and prevention will come from the new Republican-controlled Congress.
Many of the largest AIDS political organizations do not even offer individual memberships, or any other way for non-specialists to be involved.
And we will need to include political communication as a regular part of our everyday lives, not only at elections or when AIDS is in the headlines, but at all times.

And they are what they are because of the overall power of the dominant caste to maintain their dominance in discourse as in all else.
Bourdieu takes this so much for granted, referring only to the "field of power," as the social background for these relations among discourses and their evaluations, that we do not seem to get in most of his work any very explicit grounding of textual politics in the politics of coercive power.
