Lecture Note

Political thought also called political philosophy or theory is concerned with the
study of fundamental questions about the state government or governance, politics,
liberty, justice, rights and law. Political philosophy is a rational enquiry into all that
concerns man and his life in relationship with his fellow men in the state (Okoh,
2005:33).
Political thought is thought about the state, its structure, its nature and its purpose. It
seek to answer basic questions bothering on what is the state and why should citizens
obey the state. What is the nature of man and what are his basic political needs for
living etc. the study of political philosophy is kind of intellectual no man’s land .i.e.
it is a subject of boarder dispute between at least the adjacent territories of politics,
