Show Summary Details


Political science has developed as a trans‐disciplinary process of hybridization. Innovation occurs in exchanges with other fields, and few political scientists work in a core of their subject. Political psychology, geography, sociology, economics, anthropology, comparative politics, and politics in the natural and social sciences are such hybrid research areas.

Keywords: cross‐disciplinary hybrids; political science; sub‐disciplines
