The Conceptual Framework and the Cash Basis

  • W. J. M. Mackenzie


This paper is an attempt to say something in general terms about the problems of research in politics. The matter is a serious one to us professionally; but we are none of us sure that others take us as seriously as we take ourselves. Hence a certain embarrassment, from which I may sometimes take refuge in flippancy. The title of the paper (not chosen by me) has, I am afraid, that flavour.
