The purpose of theory is to offer an understanding of a complex world and the various interactions that take place within this environment. It is theory that allows us to think systematically. Fitting events into theory and using theory to explain and predict events are what separate the study of political science from a study of current events.
Select at least two of the articles assigned this week, and compare and contrast how each one applies theory. Use examples from the reading to discuss the type(s) of international events the theory is most and least useful for explaining.
Instructions: Your initial post should be at least 350 words.
