As a field of study, government explores many aspects of the human condition. It examines the notion of freedom, collectivity, liberty, justice, as well as how individuals interact within one another when their interests are at stake. In the academic world, the study of government an take some divergent paths. One such path is political science, which helps to analyze the study of government in a form that seeks to analyze the institutional hermeneutics of governing structures. Political theory is another branch of the study of government from a conceptual point of view. It seeks to analyze how different thinkers conceived of government in a theoretical point of view and contrasts these different understandings.
