From Myth to Philosophical Anthropology
The Development of Political Theory: A Critical Analysis by Richard J. Bishirjian, Ph.D. and Lee Cheek, Ph.D.


Dr. Richard Bishirjian and Dr. Lee Cheek are completing a history of political theory for use as a textbook in “Political Theory” courses taught in Departments of Political Science, Government and Politics. This work is an update of The Development of Political Theory: A Critical Analysis published by Dr. Bishirjian in 1978.

As we complete Chapters in the work, they will be posted for your comments and advice. We especially request comments from our colleagues in Departments of Philosophy and Government who teach this subject matter.

When the work is completed it will serve as a Web-companion to the printed version that will enable your Authors to add links to new studies as they are published, updated the Bibliography, and develop quizzes, essay questions, and tests in cooperation with Instructors using this textbook.
