    The father of political science was likely the Greek philosopher Aristotle. However, Niccoli Machiavelli is considered the father of modern political science. Niccoli Machiavelli is famous for the concept of, “the ends justify the means”. This concept continues well into modern politics and foreign policy theory. In foreign policy this is known as realism. Henry Kissinger, foreign policy czar of the Vietnam conflict, is a notable realist. Kissinger is a foreign policy advisor to Pres. Obama.

    Aristotle is the father of political science. Charles-Louis de Secondat, baron de La Brède et de Montesquieu, 1689-1755, should be credited with one of the first modern research projects to establish the “science” of politics and with expanding our understanding of politics. His contribution is positive and at least as important as that of Machiavelli.

    Aristotle is indeed the father of political science. He was one of the first people to come up with the idea of having a constitution to govern a country (or city-state). He compares politicans to craftsman because they are molding and shaping a government.
