ABSTRACT - A general consensus among political scientists during the last decade seems to indicate that political science as a discipline will have a brighter future if it is guided by an approach that is behaviorally relevant; political theory is the least significant field of political science because it is least relevant to a behavioral treatment of the discipline. In this study, the author challenges such behavioral contempt for political theory by presenting his vindications of the importance and value of political theory. Furthermore, he attempts to locate political theory in a proper and legitimate place in the study of politics.
