A distinction between Political theory and Political thought has been greatly emphasized by Ernest Barker by elucidating that, “There is such a thing as political thought which is distinct from and greater than political theory. Political theory is a speculation of particular thinkers, which may be remote from the actual facts of the time.

Aristotle’s logical theory as incorrect is without merit or ground despite the fact that Boole’s system may seem to be in conﬂict with Aristotle’s.
