Abstract:
Political philosophy is generally defined as the study of city, government, politics, liberty, properties, justice, rights, law and the enforcement of legal codes by authority. In other words, it deals with issues ranging from the debate about the legitimacy of government, duties of citizens to when governments may be legitimately overthrown. Thus, "political philosophy has chiefly concerned itself with how men ought to live and what form of government they ought to have, rather than with what are their political habits and institutions" (Fortes, 1960: 4).
