Excerpt from The Elements of Modern Politics: An Introduction to Political Science This book attempts the consideration of some of the major problems of political theory. Admittedly, it is a series of discussions in political fundamentals, and most of the problems presented are, in general, those of principle rather than those of factual organization. Most of the elementary books in political science have leaned too far, either toward the presentation of facts or toward emphasis on specific problems. It may be in the end simply a matter of the temperament of the college teacher of politics; and while few of us wish to engage in byzantine discussions, it is suggested that teaching to stimulate thought on political problems is successful neither with the pure problem method nor with the presentation of organized factual information. The underlying political values must be brought to the attention of the student if he is to become conscious of them. The intelligent appreciation of the facts can be greatly advanced by an introductory course in principles.
