In my lecture notes on introduction to philosophy, my professor asked us some questions in class last semester, and I was so confused even till now. So I want to hear some perspectives in this forum on how the health of a discipline is brought up by contrasting perspectives in the area of political sciences?
Question 1: how would contrasting perspectives in the political sciences help nurture the health of the discipline?
Question 2: How would contrasting perspectives hinder the health of a discipline in the political sciences?
I just cannot possibly think of a way how they can be related, I would appreciate some good real life examples to help me understand these two questions.
