Science Social Sciences Political Science 784 Political science, often nicknamed "polisci," is the academic study of government, and of the social, economic, historical, and other influences on its processes and decision-making. Confucian thought and ancient Greek philosophy originated the field, which grew substantially with the rise of nineteenth century liberalism. Today, it utilizes social science methodology such as content analysis, public opinion surveys, and statistical analysis to create and evaluate generalizations about how government and people behave.
