Political Philosophy

Political philosophy analyzes the relationships between man, society, and the sovereign by applying ethical terms and principles. As such, it entails a broad scope of political, social, and judicial abstract discourses. Some of the metaphysical questions in political philosophy are the preliminary ontological questions of the individual versus the community, the nature and essence of political justice, the social contract, and the matter of consensual obedience to the sovereign. Political philosophy also examines normative questions, such as the proper form of political, economic, or social force usage by government institutions and citizens. Among political philosophy’s research fields are jurisprudence, regime theories, political ethics, applied ethics, political economy, just resource distribution, issues of politics and religion, human rights and the balance between them, the fundamentals of the constitution, and more.
