Political Science is a social science discipline concerned with the study of the state, government and politics. Aristotle defined it as the study of the state.
 It deals extensively with the theory and practice of politics, and the analysis of political systems and political behavior. Political scientists "see themselves engaged in revealing the relationships underlying political events and conditions.
