Politics and Political Science – Earlier the term “politics” denoted a comprehensive meaning of the study of the entire science of the state.
Aristotle, the father of political science, used the term “politics” for the subject dealing with the phenomenon of the state.
Originally derived from a Greek word, “Polis” or “City-state.” It embraces everything that touches the life of the state.
Writers like Jollineck, Holtzendoff, and Sidquick prefer the term politics to political science.
According to : Cattlin – Politics is the study of organised human society.
