PMS Political Science MCQs

Political thought, or political philosophy, is the study of questions concerning power, justice, rights, law, and other issues concerning governance. Whereas political science assumes that these concepts are what they are, political thought asks how they have come about and to what effect. Just as Socrates’ simple question “How should we be governed?” led to his execution, the question “What makes a government legitimate?” results in political turmoil when posed at critical times. Political thought asks what form government should take and why; what duties citizens owe to a legitimate government if any; and when it’s going to be legitimately overthrown, if ever. Generally speaking, political thought, political philosophy, and political orientation are terms often used interchangeably to mean the study of philosophical texts associated with politics.
