SOCIAL SCIENCE EDUCATION CONSORTIUM. PUBLICATION 104, A SYSTEMS APPROACH TO POLITICAL LIFE.
EASTON, DAVID
A MORE DETAILED ANALYSIS OF THE THEORETICAL POLITICAL SYSTEM DESCRIBED IN THE PREVIOUS REPORT, AA 000 264, IS PRESENTED IN THIS PAPER. THIS POLITICAL SYSTEM IS BASED ON THE AUTHOR'S DEFINITION THAT POLITICAL LIFE CONCERNS ALL THE VARIETIES OF ACTIVITY THAT SIGNIFICANTLY INFLUENCE THE AUTHORITATIVE OR BINDING ALLOCATIONS OF VALUES ADOPTED FOR SOCIETY. AN EXPLANATION IS GIVEN OF THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THREE OF THE CONCEPTS (ALLOCATION OF VALUES, AUTHORITY, AND SOCIETY) THAT ARE ESSENTIAL PARTS OF THIS DEFINITION. VIEWING POLITICAL LIFE AS A SYSTEM OF BEHAVIOR, THE AUTHOR USES TECHNIQUES OF SYSTEMS ANALYSIS TO CONCEPTUALIZE THE SCIENCE OF POLITICS. THIS PAPER WAS WRITTEN AS PART OF THE SOCIAL SCIENCE EDUCATION CONSORTIUM, A CURRICULUM PROJECT DESIGNED TO OUTLINE THE CONCEPTS, METHODS, AND STRUCTURE OF SEVERAL OF THE SOCIAL SCIENCES FOR USE BY TEACHERS AND CURRICULUM WORKERS AT ALL GRADE LEVELS.
