Political science and 政治学

  I went to frisskolan to play floorball with my friends yesterday night. But there were just 6 people coming there. As a consequence, I had to continue moving without taking rest, which made me terribly exasted, it was really good exercise though.
  I recently realized that people who are doing some kind of sports on a regular basis are not likely to be depressed. This is true. Exercise makes people relax. I would like to reccomend Japanese people who are constantly depressed to do some exercise, be it running or swimming.
  Today, I run to my university so as to be on time for my course, “Development and Armed Conflict”. Despite my effort to be on time, however, the lecture was chanceled suddenly. I went to the library and prepared for the seminar tomorrow. I have to answer the following question “Describe and discuss trasional justice and reconcilliation–what are the potential benefits versus challenges they may pose for a postconflict development country?
  To tell you the truth, I find myself that I don’t like this “peace and conflict” study so much. It is true that Uppsala university is the one of the famous one when it comes to “Peace and Conflict Study”. And I am quite amazed that people here are trying to be as empirical and theoritical as possible regarding this issue in which people are likely to be emotional.
  Contrary to the study in this field in Japan where people tend to jump into the conclusion about what we should do to make peace, they stick to observe what are the common factors among conflict countries and extract the tendencies and patterns. It is understandable that they call themsemves “Political scientist”. (In japan there is no proper word for “political science”=政治科学(?))
  Still, I don’t like this subject. This is not that I don’t want to think about peace, but that I think these theories are not so useful to explain the reality. Of course it is important to theorize, but I am not the suitable man to do that.
  Probably, that ‘s why I chose to study about “history of diplomacy” in my professor hosoya. I want to focus on the persons who are involved in the center of decition-making rather than the structure or something like that. Maybe I am far from the so-called “scientist”.
