The concept of political science studies the systematic study of government. It is also the ability to influence and persuade people to achieve the vested political power and authority to conform the development thrusts and directions of the national government. It has wide range of specialized relationships in social sciences to connect the societal activities of the state.

1. History

History relates on the past events where we can find the rise and fall of empire or kingdom. The historical achievements of the rulers, kings and emperor have been the main focus as it unfolded the rise of the nation and state. The historical chronicles of events have always been related to the political struggle of power and authority. The history of the nation originated so much the political expansion and division of the state that had shape the history of the nation from the early civilization and the rise of empire; its division which later form feudal age; the rise of the state and its role colonial administration; and the maturity of the individual state. These are the significant relationship of history with that of political science such as the concept of feudalism, socialism, mercantilism, absolutism, and other related term that involved the political power and authority of the state.

2. Philosophy

Philosophy focuses on the study of logic, ethics, and morality. It has special interest in the areas of personal and collective values on wisdom, equality, freedom, justice and truth. These are the foundation of political science as completed by the study of state and government. The ideas of people empowerment, human rights and justice, revolution and independence were articulated by the philosophers to enforce the democratic and authoritative role in the society.

The wisdom and its role in governance transforms into what we call Political Philosophy. The political philosophers of the age of enlightenment have shown united thought on the ideas of social contract, democratic rights, good governance and the political ideologies that set the new authoritative form of government in the past.
