B. Positive and negative of politics
Politics is the activity through which people make, preserve and amend thegeneral rules under which they live. As such, it is an essentially social activity,inextricably linked, on the one hand, to the existence of diversity and conflict, and onthe other to a willingness to co-operate and act collectively. Politics is better seen as asearch for conflict resolution than as its achievement, as not all conflicts are, or can be,resolved.Politics has been understood differently by different thinkers and within differenttraditions. Politics has been viewed as the art of government
or as ‗what concerns thestate‘, as the conduct and management of public affairs, as the resolution of conflict
through debate and compromise, and as the production, distribution and use ofresources in the course of social existence.There is c
onsiderable debate about the realm of ‗the political‘. Conventionally,
politics has narrowly been seen as embracing institutions and actors operating in a
‗public‘ sphere concerned with the collective organization of social existence.
However, when politics is understood in terms of power-structured relationships, it may
be seen to operate in the ‗private‘ sphere as well.
A variety of approaches have been adopted to the study of politics as anacademic discipline. These include political philosophy or the analysis of normativetheory, an empirical tradition particularly concerned with the study of institutions andstructures, attempts to introduce scientific rigour through behavioural analysis, and avariety of modern approaches including the use of rational-choice theory.
