Comparing Japanese and Italian Politics: A Personal Quest

Like many others in the field, my goal in studying political science is to make political science more scientific. Yet my idea of how to become “more scientific” seems to differ from the norm. The problem arose in high school when my plane geometry class failed to impress. Making deductions from ad hoc assumptions about imaginary concepts still does not seem like science to me. I also find the search for the structure of DNA and Darwin’s epiphanies in the Galapagos Islands as exciting as Galileo peering through a telescope.
