The Impertinence of Political Theory - Which kind of link does presently connect political theory and political science in Italy? And, most of all, which kind of function could political theory perform with respect to the growing need to understand and foresee the great transformations the global system and western democracies’ « domestic » systems are undergoing? The author answers both questions moving from the observation that, at present, « political vision » is getting less far-sighted. At the same time, democracies’ time horizon is getting much shorter. In this context, political theory is called to a creative surge, irrespective of any worry which may arise about its academic identity and its link to more established academic fields. The circumstance of the closing of « Teoria Politica » first series, instead of putting an end to the attempts to work out a « meta-theory » of political theory, stresses its relevance for political science, besides the urgent need of it in order to put a stop to a further and dangerous narrowing of our « political vision ».
