Abstract

Giovanni Sartori’s Methodology of Political Science


Giovanni Sartori, one of the greatest world’s political scientist, was also very interesting in methodology of political science. In his opinion methodology is more the method of logos, of thinking than specific research techniques. He wrote: There is no methodology without logos, without thinking about thinking. Sartori strongly expressed regret that the today’s mainstream of political science is mainly quantitative and statistical, not qualitative. According to his standpoint political scientists should be strongly interested in the question “What is?”, before asking “How much?”. Sartori is admirer of the qualitative approach to methodology. This approach is based on logically defined concepts and the careful and precise use of language, because bad language generates bad thinking.
