The article presents a discussion on paradigms in political science and economics. Ways of looking at things that are generally shared by one's colleagues are called paradigms. One of the major uses of paradigms in the social sciences is in the imputation of causality. One of the currently held paradigms in political science is that interest groups are an important motive force in political systems and that the character of interest groups located in a polity may have profound effects on both the structure of a government and the nature of its political processes.
