    He meant that almost everything happens in political context, that the decisions of the polis(the Greek city-state) governed most other things. Politics, in the words of yale’s harlord lasswell, is the study of “who gets what.” Report Abuse

    Aristotle has claimed that political science “determines which of the sciences should be in the communities, and which of the sciences should be in the communities, and which kind individuals are to learn, and what degree of proficiency is to be required.” Based upon this claim, he has placed many studies of human action under this theory of political science.Due to the extreme technological society which we live in today, many individuals may be torn between agreement and disagreement with Aristotle’s view. Specialty scientists and technological experts can become so involved with their new advances, they not be on the same level as political scientists, which can cause conflict among the two. Aristotle’s theory behind political science has claimed that it is above all other sciences, combining them all to benefit the society in whole. It studies all human actions to determine the good life for all. Although these new technological advances may be aimed at achieving a good means or goal, the benefits to society may become overlooked. Specialists may try to convince the public that these advances are what society needs for a good life, when in actuality, may become harmful to society.
