What other sciences look like

AuthorsColomer, Josep M.
KeywordsNatural and social sciences

CitationEuropean Political Science 6: 134-142 (2007)
AbstractIn order to have references for discussing mathematical menus in political science, I review the most common types of mathematical formulae used in physics and chemistry, as well as some mathematical advances in economics. Several issues appear relevant: variables should be well defined and measurable; the relationships between variables may be non-linear; the direction of causality should be clearly identified and not assumed on a priori grounds. On these bases, theoretically driven equations on political matters can be validated by empirical tests and can predict observable phenomena.
