Taking Ideas Seriously in Political Science: The Diffusion of Presidentialism in Latin America after Independence
CRAIG PARSON, ADOLFO GARCÉ, AND DANIEL BÉLAND survey the asymmetrical status of “ideational theorizing” in political science and present and assess methodological and epistemological views that underlie the asymmetry. They illustrate their arguments empirically by examining Latin American constitutional choice. They argue that the Latin American case illustrates that there are good reasons to think that an ideational account connects in more concrete ways to available evidence than leading alternative hypotheses about constitutional choice.
