A New Handbook of Political Science

Patrick Dunleavy (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

Traces political behaviour research as a gradual shift from modernism to post‐modernism, reflected in the use of positivist methodologies in institutional approaches to methodological pluralism and experimental methods. Following this underlying shift from parsimony to complexity, a current stagnation in political behaviour research is highlighted. Urges the integration and combination of insights from theoretical approaches, rather than a shift towards the wholesale relativism of post‐modern critiques.

Keywords:   experimental methods, institutionalism, methodological pluralism, modernism, political behaviour, positivism, post‐modernism, relativism
