Most decisions in modern society depend to some extent on the workings of the political process. Debate over the role of government vis-a-vis the individual has continued since the time of Plato and Aristotle.

Political science, as a discipline, encompasses a broad range of subfields that attempt to describe and explain the political process, politics, and the relationship among governments. The general areas of study in political science include American government and politics, political theory, public administration, public law, comparative politics, and international relations.
