ABSTRACT
The article examines the evolution of the discipline of political science over the century since its founding in the early 20th century. The ongoing debate as to whether politics is an art or a science is surveyed, with the author favoring a scientific approach. The increasing use of the scientific method, including quantitative behavioral analysis, is discussed. A range of publications are surveyed, including "American Political Science Review," "Political Science Quarterly," and other professional social science journals, for evidence of trends in scientific research in the field.
